Newsweek released its annual ranking of the top 1,300 public high schools in the nation, and North Charleston's Academic Magnet High School ranked in at No. 12, holding it's spot from on the list from the previous year.
Academic Magnet was the only Lowcountry high school to make the list, but in total, 16 high schools statewide were recognized.
Academic Magnet is no stranger to receiving these sorts of top honors. Just take a look at previous awards over the years and see for yourself.
The Post and Courier has the best coverage of the ranking thus far.
