U.S. News has just launched its third annual list of America's Best High Schools. The analysis of more than 21,000 public high schools in 48 states and the District of Columbia is available online and on newsstands later this month.

To produce the 2010 America's Best High Schools rankings, U.S. News teamed up with School Evaluation Services (SES), a K-12 education data research business run by Standard & Poor's. SES developed the comprehensive methodology that judges how well high schools serve all their students, not just those who are collegebound.
