U.S. News & World Report released its annual high school rankings on Tuesday, and Montgomery County performed very well compared with the rest of the state.
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.
