Newsweek Magazine released its annual list of America’s Top Public High Schools this week and we are very proud that our community had 2 local high schools making this influential list. Grissom High School which supports the Southeast Huntsville area came in at number 927 and Bob Jones High School supporting the Madison City Limits area was named number 1,320 on the elite 1,500 member list.
While the rankings may seem large due to their magnitude, the list actually represents only the top 6% of public high schools across the nation according to Newsweek. Newsweek’s selection criteria are based on ratios of advanced placement and college preparatory tests along with the number of graduating seniors. Jefferson County International Baccalaureate School was the highest-ranking Alabama school on the list and came in at No. 3.
