U.S. News & World Report recently published its list of the nation’s best high schools for 2021 and North Charleston’s Academic Magnet High School was chosen as the second best in the country. It’s the second straight year the school has earned that designation. In 2019, Academic Magnet was named the top high school in the country.
“Congratulations to the entire Raptor community – parents, students, and staff – who give extraordinary commitment and dedication each and every day to create and foster the best in learning environments that result in exceptional achievement,” said AMHS Principal Catherine Spencer. “Your efforts deserve this national recognition and are noted throughout the world!”
The U.S. News Best High Schools rankings include data on more than 24,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Nearly 18,000 schools were ranked on six factors: college readiness, math and reading proficiency, math and reading performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth, and graduation rate.
Academic Magnet is the second-best magnet high school in the nation for the second year in a row as well.
Charleston County School District had four schools place in the top-25 of the U.S. News and World Report rankings for South Carolina; Academic Magnet, Charleston County School of the Arts, and Wando High School (in that order) are the top-three for the second year in a row, and James Island Charter High School is number 20 on this year’s state list.
