Tawas Area High School received a silver medal and was honored as one of the nation’s top schools by US News and World Report. TAHS was also ranked 73 out of the 850 high schools in the State of Michigan. In the U.S. News and World Report 2016 Best High Schools rankings, over 21,000 U.S. public high schools were reviewed. To be eligible for a state ranking, a school must be awarded a national gold or silver medal. Schools were ranked within each state, as well as on a national stage, so families can see how their public high school stacked up against rivals within the community and across the country. In the national rankings, 500 schools earned gold medals, 2,173 schools were awarded silver and 3,545 schools earned bronze.
