Hume-Fogg leads pack as 3 TN high schools make national honor roll

Leading the pack, as it has in past years, is Hume-Fogg Academic Magnet in downtown Nashville, which landed the No. 54 spot. While marked as the top school in the state, the ranking reflect a national drop from last year, when it was labeled No. 37.

Next up is Martin Luther King Jr. Magnet, which came in at No. 74. As the second Metro Nashville school on the chart, MLK jumped nearly 40 spots after sitting at No. 113 last year. Merrol Hyde Magnet School in Hendersonville is a newcomer to the group and squeezed in at No. 92 this year, up from a ranking of No. 127 the year before.

Ravenwood High School in Brentwood is the only other Middle Tennessee institution to make the state’s top 10 list. The school ranked No. 392 nationally, but took the No. 4 spot statewide. Other schools making the state's top 10 include one each from Collierville, Kingsport, Knoxville, Johnson City, Memphis and Oak Ridge.
