A company called Niche ranked 14,431 high schools nationally based on dozens of key statistics and over 4.5 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents.  According to their website, a high ranking means the school is an exceptional academic institution with a diverse set of high-achieving students who rate their experience very highly.  The list did not include magnet, charter or online schools.
