IDEA High Schools Rank Among U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best High Schools

For the 12th consecutive year, IDEA college preparatory schools in the Rio Grande Valley were ranked among the best performing high schools in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. This annual list of rankings reflects the rigor and success of our commitment to our scholars on the road to success in college and in life. 

According to U.S. News & World Report, the 2020 Best High Schools rankings take a holistic approach to evaluating schools, looking at six factors: college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth and graduation rates. Specifically, college readiness measures participation and performance on Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) exams. The methodology assigns weights to each of the six factors and then produces an overall score on which the ranking is based. 

In U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 ranking of best high schools in the nation released today, eleven IDEA high schools received rankings on the list. This expansive edition ranks more schools across America than ever before, evaluating more than 17,700 public high schools on how well they serve all of their students, regardless of economic or ethnic background.
