Lavelle Prep Ranked in U.S. News and World Report’s 2020 Best High Schools List

Lavelle Prep is proud to announce that our high school has been ranked amongst nearly 18,000 of the top educational institutions in the nation, according to the U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best High Schools list.


This year, Lavelle Prep has been honored for its exceptional achievements, placing as the 350th best high school in New York State and the 96th best public high school in New York City.

A great high school educates all students from different social and economic backgrounds, exposing them to challenging coursework on the path to graduation,” states Robert Morse and Eric Brooks, the report’s leading data strategists. “The highest-ranked U.S. public schools in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best High Schools rankings are those whose attendees demonstrated outstanding outcomes above expectations in math and reading state assessments, passed a diverse array of college-level exams and graduated in high proportions.”

Based on a calculation of six performance indicators, Lavelle Prep has received an outstanding score of 77.11/100. 


In a message of gratitude to the Integration Charter Schools organization, Principal Rexha writes:


“On behalf of the high school team, I would like to share that this success is yet another milestone in Lavelle’s story. Success is sweet. But it’s sweeter when it’s achieved through coordination, cooperation, and collaboration. When it comes to the high school team, the word TEAM is actually the acronym for Terrific, Enthusiastic, Ambitious, and Motivating. We love taking challenges as we think about Good, Better, Best!”


Congratulations to the students, teachers, and faculty of our Lavelle Prep family for this incredible accomplishment!
