High School Counselor Rankings

National Liberal Arts Colleges

High School Counselor Rankings Methodology

In spring 2013, we asked guidance counselors from a nationwide sampling of public high schools in the 2013 U.S. News Best High Schools rankings that were gold, silver or bronze medal winners, as well as from the largest private independent schools nationwide, to tell us which National Universities and National Liberal Arts Colleges they think offer the best undergraduate education to their students. They rated the universities on a scale of 1 to 5 (with 5 being the top score) or marked "don't know" if they were unfamiliar with that particular college. The two most recent years of survey results, from spring 2012 and spring 2013, were averaged to compute the high school counselor reputation score used in this ranking.
