U.S. News and World Report has released its 2016 rankings of the country’s best high schools, identifying the public high schools that do the best job of preparing students for college and careers.

While the number one ranked school is a magnet school in Dallas for gifted students, the numbers two and three schools are both open-enrollment BASIS charter schools, in Arizona. The sixth ranked school is also a BASIS open-enrollment charter school.
