King William High School Earns Bronze Award In US News Report

King William High School received a bronze rating in the newly released article in The U.S. News and World Report on the best high schools in the nation.    In total, U.S. News nationally ranked the 4,707 highest-scoring schools as gold, silver or bronze. A high school's position in the numerical rankings, whether it was awarded a medal or whether it was ranked at all was dependent on how high it scored in all three steps of the rankings methodology.

This report reduced the 31,242 public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to 19,411 schools, which is the total number of public high schools across the country that had high enough 12th-grade enrollment and sufficient data from the 2011-2012 school year to be eligible for the rankings.
