Brighton High School was recently ranked among the best in Michigan. The annual US News & World Report High Schools ranks the high school 21st in the state, as well as 777th in the nation. With more than 21,000 public high schools in all 50 states, that’s pretty impressive.
According to the Brighton Patch, the top 25 schools were determined based on things like graduation rates and standardized testing. Brighton students perform among the best in the state, as well as in the top percentiles in the nation. Not only that, but Brighton students have gone on to perform well in college as well.
“Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance on state assessments, their graduation rates and how well they prepare students for college,” according to U.S. News & World Report, which looked at curriculum, test scores and student demographics.
The number one high school in the US was the School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas, Texas. The number one school in Michigan was the International Academy in Bloomfield Hills, which also ranked number nine overall. Nonetheless, we here at Brighton Honda couldn’t be more proud of our local high school students. Not only that, but the faculty and staff also deserve recognition for their ability to teach and inspire students.
