James Madison is the No. 1 Online High School for 2018-2019

A popular school rankings website recently awarded us an exciting upgrade!

For the 2017-2018 academic year, we were pleased to be No. 11 on the Best College Reviews list of The 25 Best High Schools Online. We’re trying to be really chill about their new list, but we can barely contain ourselves because, not only did we break into the Top 10, we made to the very top!

For the 2018-2019 academic year, Best College Reviews ranked James Madison High School as the No. 1 online high school!

Best College Reviews is editorially independent. That means they create their lists on their own and the schools they include do not buy advertisements in exchange for better placements. Everyone in the JMHS family works hard to provide quality education at a great value and it’s very exciting to be recognized for our efforts.

Going into more detail this year than last, the website’s editors explained their 2018-2019 rankings were based on the following points system:

  • Range of course selection, including core, Advanced Placement, and elective opportunities (1-5 points)
  • Level of course flexibility in earning an online high school diploma (1-3 points)
  • Testimonials from online high school graduates and/or family members. (1-3 points)
  • Academic support and career guidance from faculty (1-3 points)
  • Quality of virtual high school classroom technology (1-3 points)
  • An additional point was awarded for noteworthy features (1-3 points)

If the final total resulted in a tie, the school with the lower tuition was awarded the higher ranking. All of the information used in the audit was pulled from data available from the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Census Bureau, and other public sources.
