Five Williamson County schools are listed among the top high schools in the nation according to the US News and World Report’s annual listings.  Brentwood High, Ravenwood High, Franklin High, Page High and Independence High all made the 2013 list of America’s Best High Schools.

“The formula used for the US News and World Report’s ranking is based on student achievement on the End-of-Course assessments for Algebra I and English II and the number of seniors who took and passed an Advanced Placement exam before or during their senior year,” said Ravenwood High School Principal Dr. Pam Vaden.  “The credit goes to the teachers of those courses, who work collaboratively as a team to guarantee a quality education for all students.”

According to the rankings, Brentwood High and Ravenwood High were the highest ranked non-magnet schools in Tennessee.
