Decorative GCHS Makes Best High School List for Fourth Year in a Row
Grayson County High School has been named one of U.S. News & World Report’s Best High Schools, Bronze for the fourth year in a row. Fewer than 30% of schools nationwide earn the “Best” badge each year, which is widely recognized as a symbol of excellence in education. 

According to the publication’s website, rankings evaluate public high schools nationwide to identify those that best serve all of their students. Those making the list excel in three main areas: exceeding expectations on state proficiency tests, offering challenging coursework, and student graduation. Students from nationally recognized schools graduate at rates that are 12 percentage points higher, on average, than students at other schools throughout the country.
