Some of the top-ranked public high schools in Ohio are Indian Hill High School, New Albany High School and Upper Arlington High School, according to Niche. Top-ranked private schools include Western Reserve Academy, Maumee Valley Country Day School and Olney Friends School.
In these rankings, student experiences, academic excellence, student diversity and student involvement in activities are taken into account, although Niche counts academics for 50 percent for public schools' grades and 60 percent for those of private schools. The top-ranked schools score well in all these areas, and they are generally well-rounded in balancing the student experience with academic and extracurricular activities. This indicates that the schools prepare students for their later years of study and for the world beyond high school.
All of the top-ranking public schools offer both academic excellence and satisfaction. Ratings of A+ were given for the top three schools' academic scores, and the parents and students rated all three of them as offering an overall positive experience, giving the schools at least a 4.2 out of five.
Niche grades private schools on fewer metrics and focuses on the academic excellence of the top three schools. These schools also value extracurricular activities and student involvement.
