Each of Forsyth County Schools’ high schools with senior classes rank in the top 15 percent in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The Washington, D.C.-based company released its 2019 Best High Schools on Tuesday, a “comprehensive evaluation” of more than 17,000 schools across the country.

The company, along with RTI International, a global research firm, ranked schools for the 2016-17 school year based on their students’ college readiness, math and reading performance and proficiency, graduation rates, the performance of underserved students and the number of students who participated in and passed a variety of college-level exams, according to a press release.

Lambert High School led the way, ranking in the top 1 percent of schools in the country and sixth among Georgia schools thanks to a high graduation rate (99 percent) as well as proficiency in reading (89 percent) and mathematics (87 percent) and the number of students who passed at least one AP exam (87 percent.)

South Forsyth ranked 13th in Georgia, followed by West Forsyth (28th), Forsyth Central (52nd) and North Forsyth (63rd).

Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology was the No. 1 ranked school in Georgia, according to the report, with a graduation rate of 100 percent and a college readiness score of 100.
