No Zachary?

RIGGED!

You're missing Patrick F Taylor (193), Ben Franklin is 198, & Thomas Jefferson (596)

Better put "public" high schools in the title, or else all the private school peeps will be running in here to cry foul.

Either way, 10+ pages of "my high school was better than your high school".

BF and Lusher are definitely where parents who live in Nola are sending their kids. Why pay that much for private or Catholic high school when your kid can receive a better one at a public, albeit selective, school? Lusher has more district restrictions than BF and a lot of the Lakeview/LakeVista crowd are sending their kids to BF.

The rankings seem awfully skewed based on AP performance, since that is 40% of the ranking formula.

By contrast, 25% is graduation rate, 25% is college attendance, and 10% is ACT / SAT performance.
