Charter schools — which are run by private companies (and by school districts in a few cases) that receive state funding to provide a free education to students — have had a strong presence in the top ranking by SAT score over the past several years.
Earlier this year we brought you rankings based on 2014 SAT test scores and now we have 2015 scores to share.
High rankings on the SAT test are a good indication of college readiness, which in turn prepares students for the workforce, according to the College Board, which administers the SAT test.
Phoenix-based Maps & Facts Inc. created a map that shows the top 10 metro Phoenix public high schools and how each performed on the 2015 SAT test. Because the map is based on attendance boundaries, it does not include charter schools, said Paul Johnson, founder of Maps & Facts.
