According to ColoradoSchoolGrades.com, there are plenty of outstanding high schools in the state.

The site's roster of the ten finest includes five schools that tied for first place.

And even a couple of runners-up received A+ ratings.

Note that there's very little crossover between the site's picks and those Colorado high schools lauded by U.S. News & World Report last year.

Continue to count down the photo-illustrated top ten, featuring a sampling of info from the site. For much more information, click here.
