U.S. News & World Report said it used a three-step methodology to compile its list:
The first step determined whether each school’s students were performing better than statistically expected for students in their state.
The second step assessed whether their disadvantaged students – black, Hispanic and low-income – were outperforming disadvantaged students in the state.
The final step examined college-readiness performance using Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate test data as the benchmarks for success, depending on which program was largest at the school.
