This school in Milford is ranked 49th among more than 600 Pennsylvania high schools. John Hardin also earned a bronze medal and the nationally recognized distinction.

"We try to prepare them more for life", Ellis said, "and testing is just one of those things that happens to come along with the education". The highest-scoring schools were ranked as gold, silver or bronze in the 2018 rankings. Of those, schools were ranked based both on student performance, and on how the schools meet the needs of students who are not college-bound. Additionally, for the third year in a row, the school earned a silver medal.

That means 23.4 percent of Florida high schools exceeded expectations on math and reading tests; had minority and low-income students surpass the state average among those groups; did not have graduation rates below 80 percent and had high pass rates on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams. At some other highly ranked campuses, however, students start school without those disadvantages. Bentonville High School stayed at No. 5.

Charter schools receive government funding but operate independently of the established state school system in which they are located.
