Brooklyn Tech Makes List Of Top 100 High Schools

Fort Greene institution makes No. 63 on latest U.S. News and World Report ranking.

teachers, parents and students probably already know that theirs is one of the best high schools in the city.

Now they can add the entire U.S. to that list of bragging rights. 

Tech landed a coveted No. 63 spot on the U.S. News and World Report's Gold Medal ranking of the Top 100 high schools in 48 states and the District of Columbia released this week.

The Fort Greene institution is one of 23 New York State schools to receive a Gold Medal ranking by the publication. Of that number, 12 are located in the five boroughs.

Tech is the only high school in Brooklyn to make the U.S. News' top ranking.

We're guessing that the U.S. News' designation will only make Tech's already tough admissions process even more competitive. What do you think?

Yea, the no. 63 spot can rightly be described as "coveted". Man, I really wanted that 63 spot. How about well-deserved or excellent.

It is coveted! There are at least 500 public high schools in NYC, and at least 50,000 in the whole country. So where should the school rank in order for you to be impressed?

Went there and graduated in '63. Got a superb education and majored in architecture and building construction. This led to a successful career in government, finance and real estate development and management. I often tell folks that this education surpassed my college education. This is a well deserved listing.

This is not the 1st time / year BTHS has been ranked at about #63 for a few years (I think it went down to #68 last year) so I do not think it will change the admissions process.

Oh ... BTW Tech is ranked #50 in the the Best High Schools for Math and Science.
