Did you know that suspension rates are one of several metrics the Board of Regents uses to grade schools beyond test scores? Which schools in Central New York have the highest rates?

New York Upstate released a list of the Top 50 High Schools with the highest suspension rates. The good news is that not all that many Central New York schools made the list. A lot from the Syracuse area did.

Here's a look at how they graded these schools:

Only public high schools serving students in grades 9-12 were included in this list. The following types of schools were omitted:

- Religion-affiliated schools
- Alternative schools designated for disruptive students
- Private schools
- Charter schools
- Schools that have closed since this data was recorded
- Special education-focused schools
