Did you hear that Clarksburg High School came in at 806 out of 20,500 high schools ranked across the nation , as well as receiving a silver medal?  Pretty impressive!

The state by state performance rating was based on which states have the highest proportion of schools with gold and silver medals. Based on that metric, Massachusetts was the leading performer, followed by California and Maryland - again, impressive.

"Top ranked schools succeed in 3 main areas: exceeding expectations on state proficiency tests, offering challenging coursework and graduating their students." - Anita Narayan, Managing Editor of Education at U.S. News

Schools are ranked based on their performance on state required tests and how well they prepare students for college.
