College Success
Awards

Our second-annual College Success Awards recognize and celebrate high schools that excel in preparing students to succeed in college. Award-winning high schools stand out based on college readiness and postsecondary data collected and shared by their states. These data tell us whether students enroll in college, are ready for college-level coursework when they get there, and persist on to their second year.

GreatSchools
Summary Rating

Our new GreatSchools Summary Rating offers expanded information about important aspects of school quality — including student access to advanced courses, student progress information, and equity data to help parents see whether or not all students are being served similarly — that parents across the country can use to support their children’s education and take action to improve their local schools. We’re incorporating this rich data to ensure that our school ratings reflect factors that we know are important to parents and that research shows are connected to students’ success in college and life.
