USA School Rankings
USA State-by-State Public School Rankings
are based on data from the
Nation's Report Card
U.S. Department of Education.
There are two sets of rankings:
Parents should be careful on how they interpret these results. There
are significant variability in school performances in any given state.
On the other hand, there are little variability in state-wide averages.
So the best performing school in the worse performing state is likely much
better than the worse performing school in the best performing state.
So whatever state you live in, try to find the best school in that state.
Don't move to another state simply because it has a higher ranking. It
depends very much on which school your child(ren) go(es) to.
NAEP does not report state-by-state data for 2004. On this site, the 2004 data are interpolated

NAEP does not report state-by-state data for 2006. On this site, the 2006 data are interpolated
between the 2005 and 2007 data that NAEP reported.
High school rankings are not available for USA State-to-State Ranking.
The term "School" is often used here in place "State". This is because
we use the same engine to generate the school rankings and the state-by-state
rankings. Also, the Abbr-by-Abbr Rankings are the same as the Standard Rankings.
USA School ratings are available for:
2003 2004 2005 2006 2007
