North Ranked Bronze by U.S. News and World Report

The U.S. News and World Report released its 2018 Best High Schools rankings today, and Phoenix Union has four schools listed as Bronze schools-Metro Tech, North, Franklin and Bioscience. Franklin joined the list this year, while Camelback, a Bronze last year, did not make the list.  The rankings were based on a 2016 cohort, and included school proficiency in state reading and math exams, factoring in the percentage of lower income students, graduation rate, and college readiness as determined by AP and IB exam participation and passing rates.  The publication looked at over 20,000 high schools, and ranked 2% of the schools as the Top 500. 11% were Silver and 16% were Bronze.     In Arizona, of the 463 high schools reviewed, 12 were Gold, 38 Bronze and 70 Bronze.    The schools were also ranked by state.  Metro Tech was 52nd with a 96% graduation rate, and a 19.9 college readiness index; North, was 57th, with a 90% grad rate and a 16.9 CRI;  Franklin, 60th  with a 97% grad rate and 15.6 CRI and Bioscience, was 66th with a 100% grad rate and 11.1 CRI.
