Eleven public schools in New York State have made the list of the top 50 schools in the United States. That means New York schools make up a little more than 20 percent of the list. That's pretty impressive since many people think of a public school education as sub-par.

247WallSt compiled the list using data from Niche.

Niche ranked schools based on a weighted index of seven measures, including self-reported standardized test scores, parent and student surveys, extracurricular activities, and indicators of teacher quality.

The list does not include charter or magnet schools.
