Lebo HS Gets Silver Rating

Three local high schools have made the list of America's Best High Schools as ranked by U.S. News and World Report. Mt. Lebanon, Upper St. Clair and Peters Township high schools received a silver ranking. Schools receive gold, silver, bronze or honorable mention awards. No local schools received a gold ranking.

Pennsylvania ranked 17th, along with Kentucky, in the number of schools receiving an award. Only one school in the state, Julia Masterman Secondary School in Philadelphia, received a gold award. The ratings system uses publicly available test scores and curriculum information to rank schools based largely on how well they perform against statistical expectations based on students' past performance.

And for only $150 million, we can assure ourselves a gold ranking next year.
