McFatter Technical High School, Cypress Bay High School and Sheridan Technical High School. These four also made the list of the top 50 high schools in Florida.

U.S. News & World Report evaluated more than 24,000 public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Nearly 18,000 schools were ranked on six factors based on their performance on state assessments and how well they prepare students for college: college readiness, college curriculum breadth, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance and graduation rate.

Congratulations to students, families and staff at the BCPS high schools ranked among the top 20% in the nation.
