The Hudson Valley is well represented in the brand-new 2021 U.S. News & World Report rankings of the best high schools in the nation.

The criteria in ranking the more than 17,000 focused on six factors: 

  • College readiness, 
  • Reading and math proficiency, 
  • Reading and math performance, 
  • Underserved student performance, 
  • College curriculum breadth,
  • Graduation rates. 

College readiness specifically measures participation and performance on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams, U.S. News & World Report said.

The data used was from the 2018-2019 academic school year, and therefore was not affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The top-ranked school in the Hudson Valley is No. 13 Bronxville. It's followed by another high school in Westchester County, Edgemont, at No. 14.

The top-ranked school in the Hudson Valley outside of Westchester is Beacon High School, which is No. 51.

The Top 10 ranked schools in New York are:

  • 1. Townsend Harris High School, Flushing, Queens
  • 2. Brooklyn Technical High School
  • 3. High School Math Science and Engineering at CCNY, Manhattan
  • 4. Queens High School for the Sciences at York College, Jamaica, Queens
