Two Rockwood High Schools Make Missouri Top 5 in U.S. News Ranking

It's a step up from last year's rankings by the magazine, which put only Marquette in the list of top-ranked Missouri high schools. Do you agree with the list?

Two Rockwood district high schools made the 2013 list of top-ranked Missouri schools released by U.S. News & World Report today: Marquette High, which made last year's list, and Eureka High, which did not.

The magazine ranked Marquette and Eureka No. 4 and 5 respectively in its report of 2013 Best High Schools Rankings. Marquette was ranked fifth last year.

U.S. News collaborated with the American Institutes for Research, a D.C.-based organization, to rank student performance on such criteria as state-mandated assessments, how the schools educated minority or poor students, and performance on advanced placement exams in order to develop the rankings.

While Marquette and Eureka were among the top five in Missouri, they ranked 526 and 542 respectively in the national ranking in the U.S. News survey.

Lafayette High and Rockwood Summit did not appear in the national or state rankings, according to U.S. News.

NOTE: We will report more on the details of the survey as they become available.
