Once again, Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet High School and Martin Luther King Academic Magnet School rank among the top of Newsweek’s list of “America’s Best High Schools.”
In the new 2010 rankings, released this week, Hume-Fogg earned the 41st ranking, a slight drop from the 29th position it received a year ago. The magazine ranked Martin Luther King 54th overall, a drop from the 30th ranking it received in 2009.
Hillsboro High School, the only other Metro school that made the list of more than 1,600 schools, is ranked 822nd.
Fourteen Tennessee schools earned a spot on the rankings, with five Williamson County schools making the list.
Newsweek compiles its list by taking the total number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Cambridge tests given at a school each year and dividing it by the number of seniors graduating in May or June.
Newsweek has been issuing its list of “America’s Best High Schools” since 1998.
