Suncoast Community, Alexander Dreyfoos School Of The Arts In Palm Beach County Ranked Among Florida's 10 Best Public High Schools

Two of Florida's best public high schools are right here in Palm Beach County.

Suncoast Community High School in Riviera Beach and Alexander Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach both ranked among Florida's top 10 public high schools, according to a 2016 list released by Niche K-12.

The ranking and review site for educational institutions also has a college equivalent, Niche Colleges, that might be familiar to some as the former College Prowler.

To come up with the results, Niche K-12 considered feedback from students and parents, as well as statistics available on college readiness, graduation rates, state test scores, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality and more.

Suncoast Community, ranked fourth in the state, earned an A+ rating in three of seven categories: academics, student culture and diversity, and teachers. 

Dreyfoos, ranked seventh, earned top marks for its academics but received a C+ grade in the categories of extracurriculars & activities and sports & fitness—it is an arts school, after all.
