How do you guys rank ur high schools? Everytime I see a chance thread I see "my school is number w/e in the state or number w/e in the country. I also see claim of them being very rigorous or prestigious and what not.
Where are you guys getting these rankings from? A legitimate source or just what ur school officials/parents have fed you?
I think there's a collection of 15 or so high schools in Michigan which can all safely be called the top high schools in Michigan. Beyond this there are some famous private and charter schools which are ranked somewhere and collectively make up the best high schools in the US.
Agree. At one time UofM used to post it's feeder schools. Don't know if they do that anymore. But I think primarily it is the schools that tell kids their school is 'the best'. Our kids' public in Michigan is definitely at the top, but sometimes the kids are told it's #2, or "the best" or "one of the best"...if you back it up with statistics it's not #2, it's darn good but not #2 or "the best"...but that's what the kids hear. I'm sure this goes on in many good high schools across the country.
There was some admittance data that was available through a michigan daily article... gave amount of people accepted from a given high school and the amount of people enrolling... was like class of 2014 through 4 years or so back.
@Vlad-What would you say are the top 15 or so schools in MI?
For anything I could say someone could reply with "Well, what about ____" so I won't say specific schools. Many should be obvious. There are several in Oakland county, a few in Washtenaw, a couple in Kent, and a few in the rest of the state. Give or take.
