Plant, Robinson Ranked Among Nation's Best High Schools
Plant High and Robinson High make the U.S. News & World Report's list of the best high schools across the country.
Plant is ranked No. 22 in the state of Florida and No. 321 nationally.
“We are absolutely thrilled,” said Plant High School principal Robert Nelson, “I feel like I am the luckiest person in the world.”
But Nelson said that he does not take credit for the ranking. Nelson attributed the success of the high school to the school staff and student body.
Robinson checks in at No. 34 in Florida and No. 574 in the nation.
U.S. News evaluated nearly 22,000 public high schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. "Schools were awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals based on state proficiency standards, how well they prepare students for college, and other factors," U.S. News said on its website.
