FPC and MHS Among Tops in the Nation

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 - 2:13pm

The latest US News & World Report ranking of US High Schools is out, and both Flagler Palm Coast High School and Matanzas High School are in the top 1/3rd of all public high schools ranked this year.

Matanzas High School came in 4,518 in the national rankings and 215th in state rankings. Flagler Palm Coast High School is 5,055 in the national rankings and 235th among Florida high schools.

The popular ranking system received an overhaul for this year’s edition, eliminating the traditional “gold, silver, and bronze” designations. More schools were evaluated and the methodology used was revamped. For that reason, the publication warns against comparing the 2019 rankings with previous years.
