Video Tours Made by Students and Their High Schools

We’ve crunched the numbers and ranked America’s Best High Schools.


We’ve crunched the numbers and ranked America’s Best High Schools, but that’s only part of the story. Here are videos submitted by some of the top schools telling us what—they think—makes them great.

The Best High Schools section of our website has become extremely popular as users search our vast rankings and directory pages. With all that curiosity out there, U.S.News & World Report asked the Gold Medal schools—our Top 100 in the nation—to send us videos that capture the essence of what makes their schools special.

Our goal in creating this video community is to spark a dialogue and an exchange of ideas among students, teachers, parents, and school systems. The videos we’ve received so far are creative, insightful, and informative.

But don’t take our word for it. Watch the videos, share them, and tell us what you think by posting your comments. We’ll be adding more videos as they come in.
