Edina High School is ranked No. 5 among public high schools in Minnesota by U.S. News and World Report in its annual 2023-2024 Best High Schools Rankings. The publication ranked approximately 17,680 public high schools in the U.S. EHS ranks in the top 500 nationally at No. 428.
The publication’s ranking methodology uses six “indicators of school quality,” each of which is weighted to produce an overall score. Among the measures are college readiness (30%), college curriculum breadth (10%), state assessment proficiency (20%), state assessment performance (20%), underserved student performance (10%), graduation rates (10%). U.S. News no longer categorizes schools with gold, silver or bronze designations.
According to the publication, “A great high school educates all students from different social and economic backgrounds, exposing them to challenging coursework on the path to graduation. The highest ranked U.S. public schools in U.S. News & World Report's 2023-2024 Best High Schools rankings are those whose students demonstrated outstanding outcomes above expectations in math, reading and science state assessments, earned qualifying scores in an array of college-level exams, and graduated in high proportions.”
