Nevada is not known from its great schools. Yet 15 high schools in the Silver State actually made US News and World Report's coveted list of 2016Best High Schools in America. And eight of those are right here in River City (aka Las Vegas).
The magazine researched 21,000 high schools. Only 2,673 made the list. The criteria predicts a student's success in his/her future career or in college.
Advanced Technologies Academy was the No. 1 high school in Las Vegas according to the magazine. It was ranked 766th in the US, though. Boulder City High School ranked No. 9 in the state (1756 nationally) and Coronado High School was the best high school in Henderson at No. 10 in the state (1845 nationally).
For the record, School for Talented and Gifted in Dallas was the best high school in the nation.
