Seven from CVC ranked among Greater Cleveland’s Top 25

U.S. News & World Report released its list of top schools and seven from the Chagrin Valley Conference were included among the Top 25 in the Greater Cleveland area.

Kirtland narrowly missed the Top 25 as the school was ranked 26th in the region.

Chagrin Falls, which is ranked seventh in the entire state, led the way at No. 2 in the Cleveland area. Independence (No. 7), Cuyahoga Heights (8), Orange (14), West Geauga (15), Beachwood (19) and Perry (24) also were ranked.

According to its website, U.S News & World Report arrived at its rankings by totaling each school’s weighted scores “across six indicators of school quality, then computed for each school a single zero to 100 overall score reflective of performance across these metrics.”

The overall scores provided the benchmark for how well each school fared on a national percentile basis against other schools across the nation.

All data used for the rankings was mined from four sources:

  1. The U.S. Department of Education website, which contains information on enrollment, student ethnicity, as well as other profile information
  2. Statewide math and reading level assessment tests and high school graduation rates (based on the 2017-2018 school year)
  3. The College Board provided the source for AP exam data
  4. International Baccalaureate provided the IB data

In addition to the rankings, U.S. News & World Report provided summary indicators for each ranked school. Those can be seen in the table below.
