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

The publication’s 2021 Best High Schools rankings, released April 27, include data on more than 24,121 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Of the 409 Oklahoma high schools included in the report, Edmond North ranks No.4 in the state and No. 654 nationally, Edmond Memorial ranks No. 5 in the state and No. 716 nationally and Edmond Santa Fe ranks No.7 in the state and No. 1108 nationally.

“To have all three of our comprehensive high schools rank in the top 10 in the state speaks volumes about the quality of our instruction and the engagement of our parents and students,” said Superintendent Bret Towne “We applaud our students and staff members who work hard every day in pursuit of academic excellence.”

To produce the 2021 Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News teamed up with RTI International, a global nonprofit social science research firm. RTI implemented the U.S. News comprehensive rankings methodology, which evaluated six factors: 

  • College readiness (30% of the rankings)
  • Reading and Math Proficiency (20% of the rankings)
  • Reading and Math Performance (20% of the rankings)
  • College Curriculum Breadth (10% of the rankings)
  • Underserved Student Performance (10% of the rankings)
  • Graduation Rate (10% of the rankings)
