Two high schools in Fayette County are getting some national recognition.
Paul Laurence Dunbar and Lafayette made Newsweek magazine's latest list of America's Best High Schools.
According to Fayette County Public Schools, around 1,600 schools, or about 6 percent of all public schools in the United States, made the 2010 list.
Dunbar ranked number 670 and Lafayette ranked number 1,246.
In all, 16 Kentucky high schools made the list.
Newsweek evaluates schools by dividing the number of students who took the Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or Cambridge tests, by the number of graduating seniors.
Public schools with a ratio of at least 1.000, meaning they had as many tests in 2009 as they had graduates, are put on the Newsweek list.
