Three Capital Region schools have landed on Newsweek's annual ranking of America's top high schools.

Shenendehowa ranked #246, Niskayuna #270, and Shaker, #328.  Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan came in at #3; Briarcliff High in Westchester County at #33; and Rye High at #98.

Niskayuna and Shaker were joined by Saratoga Springs on aseparate Newsweek listing that ranks schools deemed the best at preparing students for college while also "overcoming the obstacles posed by students at an economic disadvantage." Here's a link to the complete list.
