Mt. Shasta High School-- 2014 National Silver Medal School
Mt. Shasta High School received a Silver Medal again this year in U.S. News and World Report's Best High Schools in America. Out of 19,411 high schools in the nation Mt. Shasta was ranked #1,514. We are in the top 8% of all high schools ranked in the nation and the top 16% of high schools ranked in the state. U.S. News and World Report in conjunction with American Institute for Research uses a three-step process to determine the Best High Schools. The first two steps score schools on how well they serve all students, using performance on state proficiency tests as benchmarks. Schools that make it through the first two steps are then assessed on the degree that students are prepared for college-level work. Congratulations Mt. Shasta!
