Byron-Bergen Senior High School was named on the 2019 list of America’s Best High Schools as determined by U.S. News & World Report. To earn this distinction, Byron-Bergen Senior High School ranked in the top 40 percent of schools nationally, placing in the top third out of the more than seventeen thousand schools. 

“This is a very prestigious recognition,” said Byron-Bergen High School Principal Patrick McGee. “We are a small, rural public school district claiming our place among larger districts, charter and magnet schools with rigorous admissions requirements, and elite college preparatory schools.” 

According to the publication’s website, the list identifies top-performing high schools based on scoring comprised of six factors: college readiness; college curriculum breadth; reading and math proficiency; reading and math performance; underserved student performance; and graduation rate. 

“I want to thank all of our staff for this recognition as this is a direct reflection of their hard work,” said McGee.
