Using 2012-13 data from the Department of Education, Daily Beast contacted U.S. schools who had graduation rates of at least 85 percent. Approximately 1,200 public schools completed their survey. Crunching the numbers further, the over 700 schools that made the final list were praised for providing an academically rigorous program for the most students while best preparing them for college.
