Newsweek magazine and the Washington Post are out with the annual list of the top 1,500 high schools in the country, which include several metro schools.
They only consider schools where at least half the students take either an advanced placement, international baccalaureate or Cambridge test. School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas was ranked first.
Every high school in the Millard School District, Millard North, Millard South and Millard West, made the list. Westside High School in Omaha made the list for the first time.
The list comes out of a study of schools that have a certain rate of students who take a challenging test. Some schools do not respond. Click here to view the entire list.
