The Daily Beast has released their list of the best 2,000 public high schools in the nation.

The list is based on six components – graduation rate (25 percent), college acceptance rate (25 percent), AP/IB/AICE tests taken per student (25 percent), average SAT/ACT scores (10 percent), average AP/IB/AICE scores (10 percent), and percent of students enrolled in at least one AP/IB/AICE course (5 percent).

66 Virginia schools made the cut and 19 of those were from Hampton Roads.
