Each state has a ton of public high schools, but some really stand out.

Niche, a company that researches and compiles information on schools, just released its 2016 rankings of the best public high schools in the US. We took a look at which school earned the top slot in every state.

The ranking examined over 100,000 schools based on 27 million reviews from more than 300,000 students and parents.

They rated schools in areas like academics, teachers, student culture and diversity, and resources and facilities. (Read more about the methodology here.) Many are charter or magnet schools, meaning they pull in qualified students from around their districts.
