After more than 24,000 public schools across the country were reviewed, 345 Tennessee schools made the rankings. Schools were ranked on graduation rates, college readiness and state testing results.

University School, operated by East Tennessee State University, ranked eighth. The report cited a 100% graduation rate and ranked the school first among Johnson City Metro Area high schools and in Washington County high schools.

The school was also ranked 463rd in national rankings and was the highest-ranked school east of Murfreesboro.

“University School has a legacy of academic excellence, and we are honored to once again be listed among the state’s best high schools in these rankings,” University School Director Brian Partin said. “Several factors were evaluated in determining these rankings, and all of these measurements indicate that University School is a champion for student success and college preparation.”

Johnson City Schools’ Science Hill High School ranked 17th. The report cited a 93% graduation rate and placed the school second in the metro area. The ranking marks an improvement from last year’s 21 and a climb of 11 spots from the 2016-17 ranking of 28.

“We are proud of the students, teachers, staff and administrators at Science Hill High School for earning this prestigious recognition as one of the top high schools in Tennessee,” Johnson City Schools Superintendent Steve Barnett said in a Wednesday news release.

Science Hill Principal Todd Barnett said he’s pleased with his school’s progress.

“This continued improvement is a tribute to the hard work and focus our students bring to the classroom each day and the commitment of our Hilltopper staff in providing the rigor necessary for our students to compete with their peers across the state,” he said. “It is also a tribute to the continued support of our district leadership in providing Science Hill with the tools and resources necessary to perform at a high level. Moving forward, we will continue to focus on providing an exceptional learning environment for all our students.”

Greeneville High School placed 18th in the rankings, while Dobyns-Bennett High School ranked 21st. For more information on the rankings, visit www.usnews.com.
