** To compile the 2011 list of the top high schools in America, Newsweek reached out to administrators, principals, guidance counselors, and Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate coordinators at more than 10,000 public high schools across the country. In order to be considered for the list, each school had to complete a survey requesting specific data from the 2009-2010 academic year. In total, more than 1,100 schools were assessed to produce the final list of the top 500 high schools.

*** Score listed pulled from the State of California Board of Education’s 2013 Growth Academic Performance Index Report.
