Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati has been named the best public high school in Ohio for the fourth straight year by U.S. News and World Report. The magazine studied over 28,000 schools across the country to come up with the rankings which land Walnut Hills once again in the top 100 in the U.S.
U.S. News says it bases the rankings on several factors that include student performance on standardized tests and AP exams, graduation rates and how well the high schools prepared students for college.
In Ohio, Walnut was number one followed by Wyoming High School and Indian Hill High School. Two other local high schools also cracked the top ten; Madeira and Turpin.
In Kentucky, Highlands and Beechwood were ranked second and third.
