The U.S. News and World Report released their list of 2017 Best High Schools Report. Bexley High School was given a gold medal ranking number four in the state with a 97 percent graduation rate.


In the silver category, Grandview Heights ranked #31 in the state thanks to its Advanced Placement course work and exams. Also, on the list was Centennial High School. The school serves 833 Columbus city students and manages to keep up with its suburban counterparts.

“Centennial does a good job of offering all kids opportunities to grow from wherever they are to wherever they want to be. But we have lots of pathways for different kinds of learners,” said Rebekah Krauss, an English teacher at Centennial.

Centennial competes with Columbus Alternative as the top two schools in the district.
