U.S. News & World Report partners with North Carolina-based RTI International to research and collect data on the schools and rank them each year.

According to their website, school rankings are based on the principles that the school serves all of its students well and it produces measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.
