For the third consecutive year, each of Fort Zumwalt School District’s four comprehensive high schools ranks among America’s Best High Schools according to U.S. News & World Report. Only the top 40% of the more than 17,000 schools ranked earned eligibility to display a U.S. News Best High Schools 2019 badge. U.S. News “Best” badges are widely recognized as symbols of excellence in U.S. education.
The agency reported that this year’s rankings are based on a more in-depth analysis than in the past. They are produced in conjunction with RTI International, a global research firm. U.S. News doesn’t collect data directly from high schools. Instead, all data comes directly from official third-party sources. The Best High Schools list is also broken out by state and ranks Fort Zumwalt’s four high schools among the Top 10% in Missouri.
