The school was one of 106 in Ohio to receive the silver medal, indicating that Mentor and the 105 schools in this group fall somewhere between Nos. 501 and No. 2,290 nationally, in terms of college readiness.

According to U.S. News & Report rankings were compiled by:

  • Determining if a school's students were performing better than statistically expected for the average student in the state
  • Comparing each school's math and reading proficiency rates for low-income and minority students with statewide results for these groups
  • Using Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate testing data as benchmarks for college readiness

If Mentor High's ranking seems low, consider that there are 892 high schools in the state. Only 234 made U.S. News & World Report's rankings.

Three Northeast Ohio schools made Ohio's top 10: Chagrin Falls (6), Hudson (8) and Aurora (10). 

The publication joined forces with Washington-based American Institutes for Research to compile its data.
