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