Pattonville High School is listed among the top high schools in Missouri and the nation on U.S. News and World Report's 2017 Best High Schools ranking. Pattonville earned a bronze medal in this year's list and was ranked as No. 26 out of 517 high schools in Missouri, placing it in the Top 5 percent of high schools in the state. This is the fourth time Pattonville earned a spot on U.S. News' Best High Schools list in the last five years.

"Pattonville High School is consistently ranked as a top-tier school in Missouri and the U.S.," said Dr. Mike Fulton, superintendent. "The school is a high-performing, caring environment by design. Our students, staff, parents and community work hard every day to ensure learning needs are met and our graduates are college and career ready. This recognition is a testament to the dedication and perseverance of our entire school family. Congratulations on a job well done."

U.S. News evaluated more than 28,000 public high schools in the nation, and 146 in Missouri made its rankings. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance on state assessments, graduation rates and college readiness. The college readiness index is based on participation in Advanced Placement (AP) courses, which U.S. News says "measures the degree to which students are exposed to and pass some college-level material while in high school."
