High Tech ranked 87th out of more than 700 public high schools in the nation that The Daily Beast surveyed. Using six indicators—graduation rates, college acceptances, free or reduced lunch programs, SAT and ACT scores, college-level courses, and academic rigor—The Daily Beast published the results of their findings this past August.
