U.S News & World Report came up with their list of best high schools in the country and seventeen schools in Maine made the list.

The list is based on the performance of all students on state assessments in reading and math; the performance of disadvantaged students on these assessments; and the degree to which the schools prepare students for college by offering a college-level curriculum.
