Charter schools represent around 6% of the nationwide number of public schools. Yet, 33% of the 2016 annual list of best ranking high schools are charter schools. We think that is pretty exciting!

The U.S. News and World Report analyzed the academic performance and graduation rate of nearly 20,000 high schools across the country and 34 of the top 100 named are public charter schools.

This study acknowledges the commitment to student achievement that is evidenced by high quality charter schools. Keep up the great work! Congratulations to the following schools:
