Bellevue high schools ranked among the best in the nation

SchoolsBELLEVUE — For the third time in less than a month, Bellevue schools have been ranked among the nation’s best public high schools. All five Bellevue high schools made Newsweek’s 2013 list of America’s Best High Schools.

International School ranked 31st among the best 2,000 public high schools in the nation. Newport High School was also in the top 100 at number 80.

Four Bellevue schools are in the top five statewide and all five high schools are among the top 20 statewide.

Interlake High School was ranked 111 nationally, followed by Bellevue High School at 242 and Sammamish High School at 1337.

The Newsweek ranking is based on six components: four year on time graduation rate, percent of graduates accepted to college, Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) tests taken per student, average SAT and/or ACT scores, AP/IB test scores, and AP courses offered per student.
