KHS Ranked by U.S. News & World Report

Posted on: April 22, 2016

U.S. News & World Report released their Best High Schools Rankings for 2016 this week and Kings High School has again been named among the best high schools in the nation!  KHS ranked #460 out of more than 28,000 high schools in the nation, earning a gold medal and  giving them the distinction of being in the top 3% in the country!

According to U.S. News Education, “Gold medal schools are those whose students demonstrate the highest level of college readiness, based on students’ Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate participation rate and the proportion of students who do well on exams.”

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 3% 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!” 

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 #15 in the state of Ohio. Last year, KHS was ranked nationally at #600 and #23 in the state of Ohio.

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