CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Local high schools litter this year's U.S. News and World Report rankings for best schools in Ohio.

Here's how U.S. News and World Report calculated the rankings:

  • The first step determined whether each school's students were performing better than statistically expected for students in that state.
  • For schools passing the first step, Step 2 assessed whether their historically underserved students – black, Hispanic and low-income – performed at or better than the state average for historically underserved students.
  • For schools passing the first and second step, Step 3 required schools to meet or surpass a benchmark for their graduation rate.
  • Schools that made it through the first three steps became eligible to be judged nationally on the final step – college-readiness performance – using Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate test data as the benchmark for success.
