CHESTERFIELD (KMOX) – Two Parkway high schools are among the nation’s best.

U.S. News and World Report ranks Parkway West and Central in its fourth annual list of “America’s Best High Schools.” Both received sliver medals.

West also ranks among the top ten schools in Missouri.

“To determine the Best High Schools national rankings, schools were first analyzed at the state level in terms of how well students in each school performed on state assessments, taking into account the test scores of disadvantaged students, who tend to score lower on tests,” Parkway said in a news release.

Schools were then ranked using students’ performance in Advanced Placement, or AP, courses.
