The Crimson earned a silver medal designation in 2017 as well as 2016 and a bronze medal designation in 2015. For 2017, Maple Grove was ranked 27th in Minnesota and 1,378th nationally, according to U.S. News and World Report magazine.
The program "recognizes high schools based on their performance on state assessments, graduation rates and how well they prepare students for college," according to a ISD 279 - Osseo Area Schools press release. "The rankings from U.S. News and World Report includes data on more than 21,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia."
Other local high schools outside of Osseo Area Schools receiving recognition included Wayzata High School (silver media, ranked 18th in Minnesota) and Rogers High School (silver medal, ranked 39th in Minnesota)
