Three of the top 10 high schools in Mississippi — including the No. 1 school  are in DeSoto County, according to the just-released 2017 rankings of the nation's best schools as determined by U.S. News and World Report.

Lewisburg High School, in Olive Branch, won the top spot in the state, while Southaven's DeSoto Central High School ranked No. 5 and Center Hill High, also in Olive Branch, was No. 6. The three were the only North Mississippi schools to crack the Top 10, with the others from Central and South Mississippi.

The annual U.S. News rankings are closely watched as a guide to how the nation's school are performing under a variety of criteria. The magazine uses various factors in ranking schools, including enrollment, graduation rates, diversity, participation in free and reduced lunch programs and how the schools fared on state assessments and Advanced Placement exams.

Nationally, Arizona took four of the top five schools and five of the top 10. In Tennessee, no Memphis or Shelby County schools ranked highly. Central Magnet School in Murfreesboro is the state's top high school, with Middle Tennessee and a couple of East Tennessee schools taking the rest of the 10 highest spots.

In Mississippi, U.S. News said top-ranked Lewisburg has a 34 percent participation rate in Advanced Placement course work and exams. The rankings show the school with a student body makeup of 51 percent male, 49 percent female; and a minority enrollment of 11 percent. The school has an enrollment of 900 in grades 9-12 and a student-to-teacher ratio of 18:1.

Fifth-ranked DeSoto Central, one of the state's largest high schools with an enrollment of 1,684 in grades 9-12, has a 36 percent participation rate in AP work. The enrollment is 49 percent male, 51 percent female; and 36 percent minority. The student-teacher ratio is 20:1.

DeSoto County Schools Superintendent Cory Uselton called the results an honor and a testament to hard work by students, teachers and administrators.

"I also want to recognize our elementary and middle school teachers for building the foundation for this success," said Uselton, who was principal at DeSoto Central before becoming superintendent. "This is definitely a team effort."
