Ranking schools is as much about selling magazines as it is a true statistical exercise. Many factors go into rankings that are highly subjective and even hard academic data can be massaged and to show superior results. Yet, that hasn't stopped news organizations from ranking schools, nor parents and administrators from eagerly anticipating the results every year. Now, even high schools have gotten in on the ranking exuberance. US News, Newsweek and Forbes are three of the many organizations that set out to rank the top high school programs in the nation. Pay attention to both the rankings and the methodology they used to choose the top ranking highschools.
