Three High Schools in Alachua County, FL are the BEST in U.S. !!

Alachua County is home to three of the nation's top high schools, according to a recent ranking by Newsweek Magazine.
  
In Newsweek's annual "America Best High Schools" report:

Eastside High was ranked 29th

Buchholz High
was ranked 109th

Gainesville High was  ranked 532nd.

The ranking put these three Alachua County Public Schools in the top 2% of high schools nationwide.

In another section of the annual report, Newsweek assigned an equity and excellence percentage to each ranked school and all three of the Alachua County high schools were ranked well above average. The equity and excellence score was measure of how many received a score of three or higher on at least one Advanced Placement test sometime in High school.

The national average for all high schools in 2007 was 15.2 percent and all three schools easily surpassed that number this year.

In a news release about the rankings, Alachua County School Superintendent Dan Boyd said the district is proud of the schools because "they have done such an excellent job of encouraging students to stretch themselves academically."

Gainesville is a Great Place to Live !!

CHRISTINE - I am planning on doing a post on the Long Island schools that placed next week.  Important information for those looking to relocate to the area.

Christine - That's great news! I wonder if it's because of UF and associated colleges being there. Too bad all Florida cities aren't up there as well.
