Dublin's high schools were rated among the top 40 in the state by U.S. News and World Report's annual ranking.

Coffman, Jerome and Scioto high schools fell among the top 40 in Ohio and the top 1,000 nationwide in a rating that looks at three different benchmarks.

Jerome High School was the eighth best school in Ohio and ranked 247th in the nation.

Coffman was 416th in the nation and 16th in Ohio.

Scioto High School was rated as the 34th best high school in the state and 878th in the nation.

"These rankings come as no surprise to our community," Superintendent Todd Hoadley said in a press release.

"The dedication of our students, staff, and parents is second to none in our state," he said.

"While we appreciate these accolades, we know a well-rounded education is a key component of the Dublin Difference and our teaching staff works hard to develop the whole child."

U.S. News and World Report compares the performance of students at the high school to average scores in the state and looks at how the least-advantaged students at each school perform compared to state averages.

The rankings also take into account college readiness by looking at Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate test scores.
