U.S. News & World Report has named all three Edmond High Schools among the top ten in Oklahoma.

The publication’s 2020 Best High Schools rankings, released April 21, includes data on more than 24,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia.  The publication evaluated six factors: college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth, and graduation rates.

Of the 433 Oklahoma high schools included in the report, Edmond North ranked No.4, up three spots from last year’s rankings, Edmond Memorial ranked No. 5, up one spot from last year’s rankings, and Edmond Santa Fe ranked No.8, up one spot from last year’s rankings.

Superintendent Bret Towne said this recognition serves as validation for students, parents, and staff who work steadily in pursuit of academic excellence.

“All of our high schools offer increasingly robust Advanced Placement, and STEM programs. These programs, supported by exceptional instruction in our middle and elementary schools, ensure continued excellence in meeting the needs of our learners,” said Towne.
