U.S. News and World Report released its annual list of 2021 Best High Schools and both high schools made the list again this year! 

Rankings are out of over 680 high schools in Washington and nearly 24,000 high schools reviewed nationally:

North Kitsap High School

  •  #68 in Washington
  • #3908 in United States
  • 97% Graduation Rate


Kingston High School

  • #72 in Washington
  • #4040 in United States
  • 94% Graduation Rate

The 2021 edition of U.S. News & World Report's Best High Schools ranks more schools across America than ever before, evaluating more than 24,000 and ranking over 18,000 public high schools across the United States on how well they serve all of their students, regardless of economic or ethnic background.

The methodology takes a holistic approach  to evaluating schools, focusing on six factors: college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth and graduation rates. College readiness measures participation and performance on AP and IB exams. Data is from the 2018-19 school year.
