Eight of the Top 10 high schools in Oklahoma are in the Greater Oklahoma City metro, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 ranking.

Classen School of Advanced Studies at Northeast topped the list, followed by Harding Charter Preparatory High School. Both schools are also among the Top 100 high schools in the nation, according to the report.

Greater Oklahoma City Chamber Vice President of Education Drew Dugan said the Top 10 list solidifies what the Chamber has known all along: Oklahoma City has great schools.

“The rankings accurately reflect the high caliber of education that people can find in the Oklahoma City metro,” he said. "Whether parents want their student in a suburban or urban district with standard curriculum or a non-traditional high school with specialized curriculum, such as Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate, we offer it. I think what's also incredible about the Top 10 list is it highlights the quality of our charter schools.”
