Solon High School Named to Newsweek's List of America’s Top High Schools 2016
Thursday, August 11, 2016

Solon High School is one of only 33 Ohio schools named to the 2016 Newsweek America’s Top High Schools list. Solon ranked #105 nationally (6th highest in Ohio) among the 500 high schools that made the list for this year.

Newsweek’s rankings rate public high schools on a variety of data points to identify the schools across the nation that are best preparing students for college. The list is derived through a two-step process. The initial threshold is based on student achievement data states report to the U.S. Department of Education. Those schools scoring highest on the resulting “achievement index” then submit comprehensive data on various indicators of college readiness, including:

• School demographics and availability of counselors
• College acceptance and enrollment
• SAT and ACT participation and performance
• AP, IB and AICE participation and performance
• Dual enrollments
