INDIANAPOLIS - Nine Indiana high schools were included in a new list of the best high schools in the country.
The ranking was compiled by national publication The Daily Beast.
The schools were evaluated based on graduation rate, ACT and SAT scores, the availability of college prep courses and the percentage of kids who apply and are accepted into college.
The Daily Beast said it evaluated 1,200 top-performing schools in total to come up with the list -- and the 700 schools being recognized deserve praise for offering an academically rigorous program to the most students while preparing them for college.
