Prospect Hill Academy Charter School has been ranked among the top public high schools in the nation by US News and World Report's national assessment of high schools, the charter said.

The magazine gave the school a silver medal, based on criteria that measured state exam proficiency, college preparedness, and teaching the least advantaged students, the school said in a statement.

This is the third consecutive silver-medal ranking for the school, and places Prospect Hill among the top 6 percent of nearly 22,000 high schools measured nationwide.

The school has campuses in Cambridge and Somerville.
