Ridgefield High School is #332 in National Rankings with a College Readiness Score 65.1/100.0.

The public school with the highest ranking in the state is Ridgefield High School, which ranked No. 5 overall in CT, the rankings also include charter and magnet schools, and No. 332 nationwide. In addition to its top spot for the state, Maeser ranked as No. 698 among the nation's public schools.

High Technology High School, with 295 students, also was No. 1 in New Jersey, followed by Bergen County Academics in Hackensack at No. 2 and Bergen County Technical High School in Teterboro at No. 3. "I congratulate the students, teachers and staff of these schools for blazing a path of excellence".

California came in second to MA for the number of top-performing schools in the nation.

He said rescue workers had rescued 11 other miners who had been trapped in the mine. He said two other labourers died in a landslide in an another mine nearby.

The first step determines "whether each school's students were performing better than statistically expected for students in the state".

Cassen noted that the district's rankings aren't a goal in themselves, but the result of efforts to prepare students to graduate from high school and move onto jobs or college.

PMSA's student body is 47 percent low-income, 94 percent minority, 39 percent male and 61 percent female. Of those, schools were ranked based both on student performance, and on how the schools meet the needs of students who are not college-bound.

"With this in mind, we define a "best" high school as one that best serves all of its students", he said in a statement. According to the data presented by U.S. News & World Report, 65 percent of Murray's students pass Advanced Placement (AP) testing, and the school has a 70 percent math proficiency (10th in Kentucky) and 70 percent reading proficiency.

"We're thrilled with the No. 1 ranking", Miller said.
