With nine schools in the top 50, Montco was the leading county in Pennsylvania.

The magazine evaluated public, magnet and charter schools -- but notably, all of Montco's top achievers are regular public high schools. 

Philadelphia has six schools in the top 50, including No. 1 Masterman and No. 6 Central.  But all of Philadelphia's top schools are magnet or charter campuses.
