U.S. News and World Report released their 2018 Best High Schools report and Little Miami High School is ranked #75 in Ohio out of 822 public high schools and #18 in all high schools in the Cincinnati area. This ranking earns LMHS a Silver Medal.

U.S. News uses a collection of criteria to rank high schools across the country. They look at scores on state-mandated math and reading tests, testing performance of a school's historically underserved students – those of black, Hispanic and low-income backgrounds – compared with the state average and a high school's graduation rate. A school needed to boast a rounded graduation rate of at least 80 percent, which is higher than the threshold used for last year's rankings – 75 percent.

U.S. News also looked at how well the remaining schools prepared students for college based on student participation in and performance on AP and IB exams.
