It's no surprise anymore when Idaho makes lists for top rated cities, locations, or people. But, it's still very exciting to see our home state acknowledged for the amazing things that we already know it to be.

In the 2016 U.S. News Best High Schools rankings, nine Idaho schools were awarded silver medals and 50 received bronze medals.

The rankings data was based on their performance on state assessments, their graduation rates and how well they prepare students for college.

Here's how Idaho stacked up:

  1. Timberline High School
  2. Wood River High School
  3. Renaissance High School
  4. McCall-Donnelly High School
  5. Century High School
  6. Capital Senior High School
  7. Sandpoint High School
  8. Lewiston Senior High School
  9. Twin Falls Senior High

If you could put Idaho on any other list, what would be?
