Four Cobb Schools Make U.S. News National Rankings For Best High Schools

USNewsU.S. News released its rankings of the nation’s Best High Schools this week, now based on data from nearly 22,000 public schools nationwide. Four Cobb County schools earned spots in the national rankings: Walton High (ranked #191 nationally, #3 in Georgia) and Lassiter High (ranked #311 nationally, #7 in Georgia) are among the top 500 schools in the U.S. for college readiness; Wheeler High (ranked #686 nationally, #13 in Georgia) and Campbell High (ranked #1606 nationally, #27 in Georgia) received ‘Silver’ level recognition for high-performing schools with lower college readiness ratings.

U.S. News determined the rankings through a three-step process that determines overall student performance on math and reading, proficiency rates for economically disadvantaged and minority students and ultimately, college readiness performance.
