Once again, High Technology High School in New Jersey tops the list of U.S. News's Best High Schools for STEM.

The New Jersey vocational school has a knack for churning out high-performers in science, technology, engineering, and math: Over the last few years, its students have placed well at competitions sponsored by Intel and Siemens and scored an average of 2149 on the SAT, and the school has put all of its graduates into a four-year university.

This year, U.S. News has expanded its rankings to include the top 250 schools—the rankings were based on students' participation and performance on math and science Advanced Placement exams.

Schools in the Northeast and California fared better than more rural schools—Montana, Mississippi, and Arkansas failed to put any schools into the top 250.
