Columbia High School received a Silver Medal ranking in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 Best High Schools list, placing it among the top 13.2% of schools in the country.
“We are proud that our community offers one of the best high school educational experiences in the nation,” said Superintendent Jeff Simons. “This is a testament to our teachers and staff from kindergarten up through 12th grade, as well as our students and their families.”
More than 20,500 public high schools were ranked with a College Readiness Index score out of 100, based on state assessments, graduation rates and college readiness for the 2016 cohort (students who entered 9th grade in 2012-13).
Columbia ranked 8th in the Capital Region, 207th in New York State and 2,472 in the country, according to the list.
