For the second consecutive year, Lee’s Summit High School was among 41 high schools in Missouri to be included in U.S. News and World Report’s annual “America’s Best High Schools” ranking. In addition, Lee’s Summit High School is one of just three Kansas City metropolitan-area high schools to be recognized through the national magazine.

This is the third year the magazine has developed the ranking, which determines the high schools that are the most successful, using a “comprehensive methodology that judges how well high schools serve all their students, not just those who are college bound.”

A total of 1,750 high schools throughout the United States earned either Gold, Silver or Bronze Medals. Lee’s Summit High School earned a Bronze Medal, the same honor earned last year.
