St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - Although it might surprise a few people, there’s some public schools in the city of St. Louis that are doing pretty well. 

 

US News and World Report have rated Metro Academic and Classical High School as the top high school in Missouri.  Mayor Slay’s Chief of Staff Jeff Rainford says not only is Metro doing well, but they’ve doubled the number of quality educational opportunities for parents in St. Louis over the past four or five years and believes if they keep doing that, not only will you see a turn around in the lives of children, but you’re also going to see a major turn around for the city itself. 

 

US News also ranks Metro as the 135th best high school in the country.
