High School Info: One of the best Public High Schools in America. We used to be #11 on the US New Report, but somehow this year we were in the 30s... Every year we send a minimum of 3 kids to Harvard, 2 to Yale... Dozens to Ivys.
Rank: We don't rank, but I'd say top 25%?
Recommendations: Fantastic, one of my strongest points.
