Two West Michigan high schools in top 10 ranking for state

A school in Grand Rapids and a school in Holland are in the top 10 schools in the state of Michigan, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Two high schools in West Michigan ranked in the top 10 statewide by U.S. News & World Report.

City Middle/High School in Grand Rapids was ranked #2 in the state and Black River Public School in Holland was ranked #6.

High school rankings by state -- as well as how schools stacked up nationwide -- were announced Tuesday by the media company. City Middle/High actually ranked 38th in the top 100 schools in the nation.

Officials say the rankings take a holistic approach to evaluating schools through six factors: college readiness, reading and math proficiency, reading and math performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth and graduation rates. 

This year, U.S. News & World Report ranked more than 17,000 schools nationwide — up from last year’s 2,700 schools, more than a six-fold increase.
