What is the ranking of high schools ? And how is it developed ? The IVALs, or & ;quot;Indicators of added value of high schools”, are a series of indicators provided each year by the Ministry of Education. ;#39;Education, which makes it possible to assess the ability to from each high school é take its students from second grade to the baccalaureate diploma. These IVALs go well beyond of the simple baccalaureate success rate and take into account the "access rate" at the baccalaureate, i.e. the proportion of students able to obtain the diploma from the second, the first and even from the final year. 

These rates are calculated by the DEPP (Directorate of Evaluation, Foresight and Performance) for the Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports,  à based on the results of the previous baccalaureate session, in the approximately 4,300 high schools in France ( general, technical and professional). From this data, we establish a ranking of the best high schools in France with a ranking, high school by high school, of the 4é nbsp;300 establishments (2,300 general and technical high schools, 2,000 high schools professionals approximately) of our country. For each of the establishments, the following figures are published:

  • The baccalaureate success rate: this indicator, expressed in percentage, is the best known. It represents the number of students who obtained the baccalaureate according to the number of registered students. this exam in the same high school.
  • The access rate of seconds to the baccalaureate:this indicator evaluates the chances that a student entering second year has of moving on to the following classes and then obtaining his baccalaureate in high school où he has just registered, regardless of the number of years necessary to complete the program. its obtaining (in other words, repetition(s) included).
  • The rate of mention in the baccalaureate: this indicator examines the proportion of students from & #39;an establishment which has obtained the baccalaureate with honors, whether it is a “fairly good” or “good” distinction. or "very good", and all series included.

Warning: changes are possible. note over the editions of the high school rankings. Since 2015, one criterion in particular has disappeared: that of the "rate of outgoing baccalaureate graduates", in other words the proportion of baccalaureate graduates out of all the él& students leaving the establishment (seconds, first and final years combined). In 2018, a new criterion was introduced, that of the baccalaureate grade rate ("fairly well", "good", " very good).

High school rankings: which are the best establishments in France ?

© Ministry of Education

Linternaute.com has decided to establish your ranking by taking into account three of the indicators provided by the Ministry of Education: the baccalaureate success rate, the baccalaureate rate #39;access to the seconds bac and the rate of mentions in the bac, all series included. We assign a coefficient of 2 for the baccalaureate success rate, which accounts for half of the success rate. in our evaluation. We believe that this measure remains relevant, despite the current situation. the growing percentages of high school graduates. But this final success is not, & #39; our eyes, the only useful indicator. To measure the quality of of teaching over the duration, we add the "access rate of seconds to the baccalaureate", which accounts for a quarter of the grade, to which has been added since 2018 the "rate of mention at the baccalaureate", which constitutes the last quarter of the overall mark attributed to & each high school.
