Miami-Dade County has the nation’s sixth-best high school, according to a joint report released Monday by Newsweek and The Daily Beast.

The report, which aims to find the schools that best produce college-ready pupils, named the School for Advanced Studies among the best in the country. Determining factors include graduation rate, college acceptance, SAT and ACT scores, and enrollment in classes such as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate and scores on those class exams.

More than 2,000 schools were considered. Three other Florida schools made the top 10: No. 2, the International Baccalaureate School at Bartow High in Bartow; No. 9, Suncoast Community High School in Riviera Beach; and Stanton College Preparatory School in Jacksonville.

According to the report, all Advanced Studies students graduate and are college-bound, and on average take at least three college-level exams.

The 500-student school of juniors and seniors, located across four Miami Dade College campuses, is a combined effort of the college and Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Enrolled students take both college classes taught by college faculty and Advanced Placement classes
