Another year, another U.S. News & World Report of the top high schools in America.

This annual roundup lists more than just the top schools in the country, it also reveals the best schools in the state as well as though within a certain metro area. School scores are determined based on a multitude of factors.

Schools that earned superlative marks had "a high rate of students who scored above expectations in math, science and reading state assessments, passed an array of college-level exams, and graduated in four years," per the report.

This year, New York was well represented on the national roundup with numerous schools showing up toward the top of the list. Of the state's 1,198 public high schools, the top 10 all hailed from the New York City School District. You can read the story below.

Some schools were not ranked by U.S. News' report, such as Owen D Young Central School in Van Hornesville. The possible reason it wasn't included is due to its relatively small student body, as it only has 46 students enrolled.

While the report also considered private high schools, they were not included in the annual ranking and appeared on their own separate list. However, most charter and magnet schools were considered in the 2024 roundup.

The Top 10 Dumbest Cities in New York State

According to Road Snacks, New York isn't just one of the dumbest states in the nation - they claim to have found the top 10 dumbest cities in the Empire State.

As for what determines a "dumb" city, Road Snacks compared 163 cities with 5,000 or more residents, to find those with the largest population of those who never finished high school. The survey used Census data and "scientific stuff" from other "legitimate" sources to find the 10 areas with the highest concentration of high school dropouts.

Road Snacks argues that not finishing high school puts one at a significant disadvantage in life. The study adds that the areas with the highest percentage of adults without a high school degree should shine a light on the state as a whole.

In the end, these 10 cities were deemed to be the dumbest in New York State.
That said, the company is not calling these cities "dumb" - so if you have an issue, take it up with Road Snacks. We're just reporting their findings.
