Flint Doesn’t Make Best Public High Schools in America List
Not one school from Genesee County made a new list of the best public high schools in America. Furthermore, not one of them even made the list for best in Michigan.
There was one Michigan school that ranked third on the list -- based on the factors listed here -- and that was the International Academy in Bloomfield Hills. Aside from that, Michigan was shut out of the list's top 100. However, they do have the best public high schools ranked by state as well... and no Flint-area schools made that one either.
No school from Flint was in the top 100 for Michigan (see that list by clicking here). No school from Genesee County was in the top 100 for Michigan. When you break the rankings down even further into metro area, there are a few schools on the outskirts of Genesee County that rank in the top 100 Best High Schools in the Detroit Metro area (a separate list available on Niche.com).
Area High Schools That Made the Top 100 for the Detroit Metro Area
Note: The below results are not for Best Schools in America or Michigan, just the Detroit Metro Area
25. Hartland High School -- Hartland Township
28. Lake Orion Community High School -- Lake Orion
29. Lakeland High School -- White Lake Charter Township
30. Clarkston High School -- Village of Clarkston
58. Holly High School -- Holly
59. Fenton High School -- Fenton
78. Imlay City High School -- Imlay City
86. Lapeer East High School -- Lapeer (data was apparently collected before merger w/ Lapeer West, who ranked #100 for Detroit Metro area)
So there you have it. If you want your kids to get a good high school education -- move.
