NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A North Charleston high school has been named not only the best in South Carolina, but among the best in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Academic Magnet High School, located at 1525 Ave. B, comes in at No. 10 on U.S News' "Best High Schools Rankings". It was also named the 2nd best magnet school in the nation.

U.S. News teamed up with American Institutes for Research to analyze 21,035 public high schools. Rankings were determined based on the math and reading results of students on each state's high school proficiency test, how well the least-advantaged students were performing, and each school's college-readiness performance based on the classes they offer.

Academic Magnet received a 4.0 on math proficiency, a 4.0 on English proficiency, and a 100 on the college readiness index.

U.S. News says "Academic Magnet High School aims to challenge each student, teacher, and parent with high academic expectations."

They go on to note that each student takes either honors or advanced placement courses, and a number of them have been published in multiple academic and professional journals.

U.S. News also applauds the school's new campus.

The No. 1 ranked high school in the nation according to U.S. News' rankings is School for the Talented and Gifted in Dallas, TX.
