The 10 best public high schools in Miami-Dade county have been unveiled, according to U.S. News and World Report’s latest rankings, which took a look at over 22,000 public schools across the United States.
The top school in Miami-Dade County was Design and Architecture Senior High (DASH), located in the Design District. The magnet school ranked 22nd nationally and second in Florida.
The top three schools in the national ranking are all located in Arizona.
They eliminated many smaller schools from consideration and their methodology was based on a few principles: “that a great high school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.”
