Once again Woodrow Wilson High School has won a Silver Medal as one of America's best high schools.
To create the rankings, U.S. News & World Report started with more than 28,800 public high schools across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Five hundred high schools earned gold medals, 2,211 received silver medals and 3,237 schools scored bronze medals in the national rankings.
Woodrow finished in the top seven percentile of U.S. high schools.
Students with college aspirations may be well-served by attending a high school that offers Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate courses. In 2016-2017, a total of 15,091 public high schools in the U.S. offered AP classes, according to the College Board. During that same period, around 800 public U.S. high schools offered IB courses, according to the International Baccalaureate (Woodrow offers both programs).
