State-by-state high school rankings by U.S. News & World Report have become eagerly awaited by parents, students, educators, and even real estate agents.

There are overall state rankings and state rankings broken down by school district.
"We also published statewide rankings specific to charter schools and magnet schools," U.S. News & World Report said.

Scoring was "almost entirely rooted in students’ performance on mathematics and reading/language arts state assessments," U.S. News & World Report said.
