Dreyfoos, Jr. School of the Arts is ranked 37th, Boca Raton Community High School is ranked 200th and Spanish River Community High School is ranked 362th.   To determine the rankings, Newsweek factored in six criteria: the school’s four-year gradation rate, college-acceptance rate, number of AP and other high-level exams given per student, average SAT/ACT scores, average AP/college-level test scores and the number of AP courses offered per student.
