North Pointe Ranked #2 in Phoenix
For the sixth year in a row, US News and World Report has ranked North Pointe as one of the Best High Schools in America. The 2017 rankings have North Pointe moving up to #2 among all public district and charter High Schools in Phoenix after being #3 last year. Being #2 out of over 200 high schools in the nation's fifth largest city is something we're proud of. Especially since you don't have to possess a special talent or be the smartest person in the class to enroll at North Pointe. All you need is a desire to be more than you are right now. North Pointe also advanced in State rankings from #21 last year to #15 this year.
