U.S. News and World Report released its 2017 listings of the Best High Schools in the nation, and seven Lauderdale County Schools were among those recognized. Brooks High School, Central High School, and Lauderdale County High School, Lexington High School, Rogers High School, Waterloo High School, and Wilson High School were each awarded a Bronze medal, with Brooks being ranked number 32 among the 363 recognized high schools in Alabama. Rankings were established using a four-step rubric based on student performance on state math and reading scores, the performance of the school's disadvantaged students in relation to the state average performance for disadvantaged students, the school's graduation rate, and the percentage of students taking and passing AP college-prep classes and exams. Rankings for the 2017 Best High Schools were based on data from the 2014-2015 school year.
