These Are the Hudson Valley’s Public High Schools by Rank

Private school? Public school? Magnet school? With so many options available, it’s hard to decide which is the best fit for your teenager. Here, we profile five institutions — and offer the vital stats on many others — to help make this decision easier


Wondering how your high school compares to other academic institutions in the Hudson Valley? Here are the official rankings.

*Junior/Senior High School

Methodology: Data was collected on the high schools in seven counties: Dutchess, Columbia, Greene, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, and Ulster. Most of the data was collected from the New York State Department of Education or U.S. News & World Report. For any missing data points, we used previous years’ data or the weighted average of the non-missing data, wherever possible. Once the data was collected and cleansed, we compared each high school’s data points to the overall average for all of the schools. We then applied a percentage weight to the standardized value for each school to create an aggregate “score” for each school. Then, the high schools were ranked based on that statistical score. Not all of the data columns in the accompanying chart were factored into the rankings.
