Oakville and Mehlville high schools were both named top-performing high schools by U.S. News and World Report. The rankings evaluate more than 20,500 public high schools nationwide to identify schools that best serve all of their students and assess the degree to which students are prepared for college-level work.

In the 2018 listing, both high schools received bronze medals, and Oakville High School earned the additional honor of being ranked 32nd among Missouri high schools.

Overall, the rankings emphasize student outcomes, incorporating data on graduation rates and state assessments. Students at the 5,948 schools that receive national recognition from U.S. News graduate at rates that are 12 percentage points higher, on average, than students at other schools throughout the country.

"Top-ranked schools succeed in three main areas: exceeding expectations on state proficiency tests, offering challenging coursework and graduating their students," said Anita Narayan, managing editor of Education at U.S. News.
