Eight high schools on the North Shore were named to  U.S. News & World Report’s list of the nation’s 1,000 best schools on Tuesday.

Of the eight listed in the report’s top 1,000 schools, only two cracked the top 200 nationwide. Manhasset High School led the charge on the North Shore, coming in at No. 162 overall and No. 17 in the state with Great Neck South High School not far behind at No. 188 overall and No. 21 in New York. 

After the top two on the North Shore were Herricks High School at No. 276 overall and No. 33 in New York, Roslyn High School at No. 340 overall and No. 39 in the state, North Shore High School at No. 430 overall and No. 47 in New York, Great Neck North at No. 444 overall and No. 48 in the state, Wheatley School at No. 610 overall and No. 64 in New York, and Paul Schreiber High School at No. 705 overall and No. 71 in the state.

All eight schools remained on the list from last year, with state rankings changing slightly. Schools whose state rankings improved over the past year include Manhasset, going from No. 23 in the state last year to No. 17 this year, Great Neck South going from No. 26 last year to No. 21 this year, Roslyn going from No. 42 last year to No. 39 this year, Great Neck North going from No. 60 last year to No. 48 this year, Herricks going from No. 46 last year to No. 33 this year, and Schreiber High going from No. 71 last year to No. 64 this year. North Shore High went from No. 38 last year to No. 47 this year, and Wheatley went from No. 40 last year to No. 64 this year.

Immediate efforts to reach representatives from the school districts for comment were unavailing.

U.S. News & World Report ranks schools based on students’ performance on state tests, graduation rates, participation in college-level Advanced Placement courses, and passing rates on Advanced Placement tests. The publication reviewed more than 24,000 public high schools across the country that were eligible to be ranked based on their size.
