Milford named 73rd in Ohio, 1,495 in US, by US News & World Report

Every year, US News & World Report ranks the best high schools by state and in the country.  This year, out of 22,000 high schools evaluated, Milford was named 73rd in Ohio and 1,495 in the country!  The best news:  this is based on data from 2009-10, and the quality of education we are providing our students has been increasing every year.  I fully expect us to be much higher in the coming years, as the changes we are making to our teaching approaches and curriculum begin to show.

The study awards schools gold, silver, or bronze medals based on state proficiency standards, how well they prepare students for college, and other factors.  For 2009-10, Milford received a silver medal.  Other local winners include Walnut Hills, ranked 1st in Ohio and 90th in the country; Indian Hill, 3rd in Ohio and 140th in the country; and Wyoming, 4th in Ohio and 143rd in the country.  Given the first-ranked school, while public, requires a proficiency test; and the other two local schools are significantly higher on the economic scale than we are – I’d say Milford is looking pretty darn good!

Congratulations, Milford!  Read the full story here.
