For the fifth year in a row, Analy High has been ranked in the top 735 high schools in the nation by the Daily Beast Media Group, Principal Chris Heller announced this week.
To create its top schools list, The Daily Beast reached out to what it considered the top schools around the country and asked them to complete a survey, around 1,200 schools responded. From there, the schools were ranked based on criteria such as graduation rates, performance on college-entry exams, acceptance to college and academic rigor. The full listing and methodology can be found here.
This year’s ranking lists Analy High School as number 221 in the county.
