In December 2009, "U.S. News & World Report" published its list of the nation's top 100 high schools. The magazine awarded an additional 1,687 high schools it judged to be deserving of special recognition with silver medals, bronze medals, and honorable mentions. High schools receiving awards demonstrated an ability to provide all students, including the least advantaged student groups, with a quality education and access to a college-level curriculum. The top 100 schools serving the greatest numbers of economically disadvantaged students were also recognized by the magazine as Top Economically Disadvantaged Schools. In 2011, "U.S. News & World Report" published two additional lists: its list of Best High Schools for Math and Science in September, followed by its list of Most Connected Classrooms in October. This Information Capsule provides a brief description of the methodology used to calculate the four rankings and summarizes the awards received by Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS).
