A South Georgia high school is ranked one of the best in the state.

On the U.S. News & World Report "Best High Schools" list, Lee County High School is number 26 in the state.  


The study looks at the profile of the school, along with math and English achievement and Advanced Placement participation and success rates.  

Principal Kevin Dowling says it's nice to be recognized, but there's always room for improvement.

"The message to us is, that's great, it's great to get that kind of a ranking.   It's great to get that kind of a report, that's wonderful.   But you still put your nose down, still work hard and you still try to improve," said Kevin Dowling, the Lee County High School Principal.

Lee County High was ranked 1387 in the nation.  Dowling says he's proud of the students and staff.
