The Complete List: 1,200 Top U.S. Schools - Newsweek America's Best High Schools

MSNBC.com: "Public schools are ranked according to a ratio, devised by Jay Mathews, that is the number of Advanced Placement and/or International Baccalaureate tests taken by all students at a school in 2005 divided by the number of graduating seniors. All of the schools on the list have an index of at least 1.000; they are in the top 5 percent of public schools measured this way. If you have 2005 data showing that your school should be on this list, please contact Mathews at challenge@washpost.com. We'll expand the list to include new schools that qualify, and that will cause the ranks of many schools to drop."
