As ranked by U.S. News and World Report, these fine educational institutions are the top U.S. high schools with the most African-American students. They are not the schools in the United States with the highest percentage of African-American students, rather the schools on the U.S. News and World Report list of the top 100 high schools in America with the highest African-American student population.

With 47.1% of its 310 students of African-American ethnicity, the Metro Academic and Classical High School in St. Louis, Missouri, ranks at the top of this list. Among the top 100 schools in the country, the high school comes in at #92 based on ratings for college readiness and test scores.

As the list continues, schools from many other states, such as Kansas, Ohio, Tennessee, Florida, Texas and California, are also represented. Even one of the top schools in America comes in on the list, The School for the Talented and Gifted (TAG Magnet) in Dallas, Texas. Though only serving 209 students, 23% of which are of African-American ethnicity, the school ranks fifth in the country among all other high schools.

U.S. News and World Report is a leader in ranking schools on all levels from high schools to colleges and beyond. Among their other lists of school rankings include the best schools by other ethnicities such as the top U.S. high schools with the most Asian-American students and the best American high schools with the most hispanic students.
