The Johns Hopkins University School of Education was included in the 2013 US News and World Report's ranking of top graduate schools of education, ranking sixth.
The rankings are released each spring by the publication and take into account both data from the schools being ranked and the opinions of various experts in the field which the school prepares graduates for.
Previously, SOE was ranked in the 2009 rankings, placing ninth. This year, SOE was joined in the Top 10 by the School of Medicine at No. 2. Last year, the School of Public Health and the School of Nursing were both ranked at the top of their respective fields, which are only periodically ranked.
