CEDAR KEY SCHOOL RECOGNIZED BY
U.S. NEWS AND WORLD REPORT
Cedar Key School is among the high schools that have been recognized nationally by U.S. News & World Report as one of the 2017 Best High Schools in the United States.

In total, U.S. News ranked the 6,041 highest-scoring U.S. schools (out of the 20,487 evaluated). Many Florida schools were included in the rankings; 39 received gold medals, 137 received silver medals and 63 received bronze medals.

Cedar Key received a Bronze ranking even though its graduation rate tied that of Chiefland High School, which received a Silver ranking. (The high schools in Williston and Bronson did not qualify for a ranking this year.)

What kept CKS out of contention for a silver or gold medal was its size. Even though CKS tied with silver medalist Chiefland High School in terms of graduation rate (93%), CKS has such small graduating classes that its Advanced Placement classes were too small to qualify for consideration.
