NORTH LOGAN — InTech Collegiate High School is a top high school in Utah according to U.S. News and World Report’s 2020, “Best High Schools” ranking. The school was ranked #2 in the state and it is the seventh time in the last nine years that InTech has been in the top 10 in Utah.

Ridgeline High School was ranked 11th overall in the state, with Mountain Crest High School not far behind, ranked 15th. Other high schools in the Cache County School District also placed well.

In Idaho, West Side High School in Dayton was ranked 28th while Preston High School was ranked 80th.

U.S. News’ ranking system looks at the performance of a school’s top students (via Advanced Placement scores and participation), and also considers the achievement of both the whole student body and underserved populations (via state testing data) as well as taking into account whether a school is meeting its core function (graduation rate).
