University High School ranked among best in the country
ISU’s University High School was named in 2012 as one of the best 1,000 high schools in the nation.
The ranking was done by Newsweek, which has included U-High each of the past four years. This year the school was 547.
The magazine found that U-High has a graduation rate of 98 percent, that 95 percent of U-High students head to college, and that graduates have an average ACT score of 25.5.
There are approximately 26,000 high schools in the country. Newsweek highlights those schools that are the most effective in turning out college-ready graduates.
