Newsweek has released a list this month entitled, “America’s Best High Schools 2012″ and Sag Harbor’s Pierson High School ranks 437 on the list.
The top-1,000 schools are listed.
To compile the 2012 list of the top high schools in America, Newsweek reached out to principals, superintendents and other administrators at public high schools across the country. In order to be considered for the list, a school had to complete a survey requesting specific data from the 2010-2011 academic year. In all, more than 2,300 schools were assessed to produce the final list of the top 1,000 schools.
