The 20 Best Public High Schools in Metro Detroit for 2017

By: Jon Corrigan

In October, I shared a list of the 37 Best Colleges in Michigan, compiled by Niche.

In order to attend such institutions, it helps to receive a solid secondary education (a.k.a. high school).

Thus, the website also ranked the top public high schools in the state for 2017.

Using data from the U.S. Department of Education, the schools’ grades were based on “state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, and high school ratings.”

From that list, below are the best public high schools in Metro Detroit:

1. Troy High School (#1 in Michigan) –
