Charter School Named Top Public High School in America, Public Schools of Choice Comprise 9 of the Top 10 Schools

April 25, 2017

Today U.S. News & World Report released their annual rankings of the best public high schools in the country. In the number one spot is the charter public school BASIS Scottsdale. Nine of the rankings top 10 schools are charter schools and magnet schools and ultimately these public schools of choice comprise 60 percent of the rankings top 100 schools.

National Alliance President and CEO Nina Rees has released the following statement:

“When you support all students in the school, when you focus on preparing everyone for success in college, careers and life, it shows. Its especially gratifying to see charter public schools rate so well on a list that goes beyond high school graduation rates, prizes the performance of least-advantaged students and values participation in college-level courses. We look forward to the day when every community in America has a first-class public high school, and were glad to see that in so many communities, those schools today are charter schools.”
