MA is home to the largest percentage of schools that earned gold and silver medals from U.S. News, which are awarded based on students' graduation rate, college readiness, and test scores.

Massachusetts, California and Maryland landed in the top three spots, respectively, with the highest percentage of eligible schools that received gold and silver medals. It is a silver medal school.
