Four Elkhart County schools were recently included on a list of best high schools in Indiana.

Fairfield, NorthWood, Goshen and Concord all ranked in the top 50 Indiana high schools according to U.S. News and World Report.

Fairfield was ranked 25th, NorthWood 28th, Goshen 29th, and Concord 32nd.

U.S. News and World Report looked at how schools do on state assessment proficiency, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests. It also ranked schools on how well students are "college-ready."

All the data the organization used came from each state's department of education.

Schools must earn a gold or silver medal to be ranked on a state list and just 127 schools in Indiana were ranked.

Three Elkhart County schools — Elkhart Central, Elkhart Memorial and Northridge — earned a bronze medal but were not eligible for a state ranking.

The full list of best Indiana high schools can be viewed on their website.
