U.S. News & World Report also puts L-C in top 20 percent of high schools nationally
LUXEMBURG, Wis. – Luxemburg-Casco High School ranked as a top 5 high school within the Green Bay metro area and the highest rated of its northern half, according to the annual U.S. News & World Report Best High Schools Rankings.

L-C finished in the top 20 percent of schools nationally for the second straight year in the U.S. News & World Report study. The publication evaluated 17,792 high schools across the country in 2020, and Luxemburg-Casco ranked 3,496.

In the entire state of Wisconsin, Luxemburg-Casco ranked 113th among 551 high schools in the state, placing in the 79th percentile. In the CESA 7 (Cooperative Educational Service Agency) of Northeast Wisconsin, representing 38 school districts, L-C placed ninth.

“On behalf of the educators, staff and parents of Luxemburg-Casco, it is a great honor to be recognized as one of the top five high schools in the Green Bay metro area,” says District Superintendent Glenn Schlender. “We have believed that our academic performance is among the best in the area, and the U.S. News & World Report rankings provide affirmation.

“Along with a strong academic curriculum, Luxemburg-Casco has a robust commitment to developing the whole child, creating a positive learning environment and career-readiness programs to assist students in identifying a career path that matches their interests.”

U.S. News & World Report ranks public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, working in coordination with RTI International, a global non-profit social-science research firm based in North Carolina. Its methodology draws on data from the 2017-18 school year. Six indicators of school quality are used to calculate the rankings: College Readiness, College Curriculum Breadth, Math and Reading Proficiency, Math and Reading Performance, Underserved Student Performance, and Graduation Rates.
