For the third year in a row, Guilford County is home to the top-ranked school in North Carolina. 

The Early College at Guilford has once again taken North Carolina’s top spot, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual public high school rankings.

It also moved up in the survey to be ranked as the 20th best school in the country, and the nation’s second-best STEM high school.

Two other Guilford schools also ranked in North Carolina’s top five. The STEM Early College at N.C. A&T came in at third, and Weaver Academy placed fifth.

Penn-Griffin School for the Arts also landed in the top 10.

Superintendent Sharon Contreras says in a news release that the schools are consistently striving to put Guilford County on the map for excellent education, and that “the efforts put forth by all educators in this district are paying off.”

The U.S. News Best High School rankings look at data from over 24,000 public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
