D'Evelyn among five high schools in top 50

Posted

Coinciding with its 25th anniversary, D'Evelyn Junior/Senior High School has been ranked the best high school in the state of Colorado by U.S. News and World Report. It was ranked the third best in the state in 2018.

The publication puts out state and national rankings every year. Nationwide, D'Evelyn was ranked 131st.

“It is a great honor to be recognized by the US News & World Report as the top high school in Colorado," said Josh Griffin, D’Evelyn’s principal in a statement. "This distinction is a great reflection of the timeless value of a liberal arts education, and speaks very highly of the hard work and dedication of the D’Evelyn students, the skill and commitment of D’Evelyn teachers, and the great support of the D’Evelyn families.”

The annual rankings, which include charter and traditional institutions, ranked 475 schools across the state, using six categories for comparison, including graduation rates, college readiness and state assessment test scores.

All 33 of Jefferson County Public School District's 33 high schools were evaluated. District schools Lakewood High school (29), Ralston Valley (30), Green Mountain(51), Golden (55) and Arvada West (76) were among the best ranked in the area.
