Five Colorado Springs high schools are among the best in the country, according to Newsweek's annual America's Best High Schools list posted this week on the magazine's website.

The list of more than 1,600 schools, about 6 percent of the nation's public high schools, are ranked on how hard their staffs work to challenge students with advanced-placement courses and tests.

Three of those on the list are in Academy School District 20: Rampart High School, ranked 368; Liberty High School, ranked 616, and Pine Creek High School, ranked 1,384. Also on the list are Cheyenne Mountain High School, ranked 384, and Palmer High School, ranked 1,142.

The top school in the nation under Newsweek's criteria is the tiny School for the Talented and Gifted at the Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center in the Dallas area. The school has 227 students.
