KHS Ranked #20 in Ohio by U.S. News & World Report

Posted on: April 26, 2017

U.S. News & World Report released their Best High Schools Rankings for 2017 this week and Kings High School has again been named among the best high schools in the nation!  KHS ranked #509 out of more than 22,000 public high schools in the nation, earning a silver medal and giving them the distinction of being in the top 2% in the country!

This ranking makes Kings High School the number one high school in Warren County and ranks KHS in the top ten among other Greater Cincinnati high schools, as well as #20 in the state of Ohio out of 866 eligible high schools.

U.S. News assesses several factors to come up with the rankings such as enrollment, graduation rates, the results of state assessments and Advanced Placement (AP) exams, and college readiness.  KHS  has an AP participation rate of 65%.

The rankings and data offer the most comprehensive information available on public high schools in the U.S.  To produce the rankings, U.S. News worked with a research organization and their methodology reflects how well high schools serve all of their students, not just those who are planning to go to college.

KHS Principal Doug Leist said, “This recognition solidifies our solid academic reputation and places Kings High School in the top 2% of public high schools in the country for preparing students for college. This is a testament to what happens when teachers, students, and parents work together to provide the best possible education for our students. This staff is amazing K-12!” 

Congratulations to our staff and students of Kings High School for their great success!
