U.S. News & World Report has released its 2019 Best High Schools by Metro Area rankings. The publication ranks high schools in more than 930 metropolitan areas, including nearly 40 in Indiana.

The schools are ranked based on the same methodology used in the 2019 Best High Schools national rankings published earlier this year. The criteria used in the rankings include high school proficiency test performance, graduation rates and college readiness performance.

"We've heard from students, parents and school officials that they're interested in seeing how their school compares with others in the community," Robert Morse, chief data strategist for U.S. News, said in a news release. "With these new rankings, residents in more than 900 metro areas nationwide can see which local schools are succeeding at educating and graduating their students."

Some of the Indiana rankings include:

Indianapolis, IN Area

  • Zionsville Community High School
  • Carmel High School
  • Herron High School

Fort Wayne, IN Area

  • Carroll High School
  • Homestead Senior High School
  • Leo Junior/Senior High School

Evansville, IN Area

    • Circling Back on WeWork

      Back in July when we first discussed WeWork, this fast-growing but money-losing venture was one of the most talked-about IPOs in years. At that time, we noted that it was too early to say what would happen, but “it should be very interesting to watch it all play out.” Turns out, that was a massive understatement!
