Simley High School regularly ranks highly on the U. S. News & World Report’s Best High Schools list. The publication ranks the top 40% of traditional, charter, and magnet public high schools based on a combination of factors. The goal of the Best High School list is to recognize high schools that are doing the best job of educating all of their students with the resources they have. This year, Simley ranked in the top 10% of all high schools in Minnesota, the top 15% in the metro area, and the top 20% in the U.S.

Schools on the Best High Schools list are ranked using data from test scores, student population, performance of different student groups, graduation rates, and more. U.S. News & World Report noted Simley’s high participation in Advanced Placement (AP) coursework and exams. More than half of Simley students took at least one AP exam in 2022. The school is also highly ranked for how well it prepares students for college. The College Readiness Index measures how many students took and passed at least one AP exam during the year, and the College Curriculum Breadth Index measures how many students took and passed AP exams in multiple areas. Both Simley’s College Readiness Index and College Curriculum Breadth Index rank in the top 10% of ranked Minnesota high schools and the top 15% of ranked U.S. high schools.
