Bronze medals were awarded to Green Sea Floyds High School, HCS Early College High School, Loris High School, and North Myrtle Beach High School.

According to a news release issued by Horry County Schools:

To determine the Best High Schools national rankings, schools were first analyzed at the state level in terms of how well students in each school performed on state assessments, taking into account the test scores of disadvantaged students (low-income, Hispanic, and black), who tend to score lower on tests. High schools that made it through this analysis were then eligible to be ranked nationally, in terms of college readiness.
