Statement Regarding HHS's U.S. News & World Report "Best High Schools" Ranking

Mequon-Thiensville School District administration is aware of Homestead High School (HHS) state ranking #142 in the most recent U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools electronic publication. Two of the five ranking factors for Homestead High School are listed as not applicable under the current rankings methodology. These two ranking factors are determined based on 12th-grade students’ participation and success on Advanced Placement examinations. U.S. News & World Report has shared that they are provided Advanced Placement data directly from the College Board. As with past rankings by US News and World Report, the rankings are determined based on assessment results from two years prior. The 2021 US News & World Report rankings are determined based on assessment data from the 2018-19 school year.

MTSD administration has contacted US News & World Report to communicate the problem and requested an updated ranking for HHS as soon as possible.
