Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart, Bellevue Melina Mara/Seattle Post-Intelligencer Show MoreS how Less School ranking company Niche weighs in on every aspect of American schools each year and this week we give you its new results for Washington's private schools.

As a bit of a spoiler, the listed best schools in the entire state are not located in geographically or economically diverse areas, for the most part. But if you're in the Seattle metro area, you have ample choices.

Niche uses standardized test scores, college enrollment, diversity grades, parent and student surveys and the student-teacher ratio to compile this list. My colleague Kevin Saiph reported last week that the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology is not only the most selective public school in America, but one of the least diverse.

After years of promising to reach out to the third of Northern Virginia students who are black or Hispanic, less than 4 percent of its students have that background, while ultra-selective colleges such as Harvard and MIT have about 20 percent. When you create a school based more on sorting than teaching, as Fairfax County did with Jefferson in 1985, it is hard to break the habit of picking applicants by their accomplishments and test scores at age 13, rather than their potential to benefit from Jefferson’s great teachers.

Last year, the school says, 52 Hispanics and 29 blacks reached the semifinal round of admissions, based on their academic records. The ability to benefit from the school’s imaginative teaching is not the main criterion for the admission people, I suspect.

I have seen the Ivy League admissions process at close range. Those colleges will, however, take a second look if you are a talented flutist or a ranked squash player or black or an alumni child or Hispanic or related to the family that just funded the new science center.

Jefferson's teachers tell me their admission committee is more handicapped by the fact that many bright eighth-graders, of all ethnicities, don’t want to attend their school or any like it. Here is a relevant demographic fact: at many of our most selective public schools, students of Asian ancestry are the largest ethnic group.

This is true of Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech and Hunter College in New York City, and Lowell and Whitney in California, all of whom draw from areas where Asians are a minority. At 46 percent, Asians are also the largest ethnic group at Jefferson.

First, most parents have little opportunity or interest in sending their children to selective high schools, public or private. Most Northern Virginia schools have teachers just as good as those at Jefferson.

Second, many Asian American families, particularly those more recently arrived, have a reverence for science, math and academic success not typical of this country, and remember prestigious selective secondary schools in China, Japan and Korea. They love what Jefferson offers and apply out of proportion to their numbers.

Their children's commitment to science and math may be particularly important to their being more likely to be admitted than other ethnic groups, because Jefferson principal Evan M. Glazer says interest in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, math) is key. “A very bright student without a passion for STEM should not be selected for admission,” he says.

Asian-American children get terrific educations at these selective high schools, but they learn eventually that attending Jefferson does not guarantee admission to Princeton or Yale. Those colleges dole out admissions like Halloween candy, not too many to any one high school.

Broadening the ethnic profile of our nation’s best high school should not be that hard. Many educators and students supporting Jefferson have formed a Diversity and Engagement Curriculum Team to recruit more blacks and Hispanics interested in science.

I think the school should also keep in mind that success in America stems more from character than test-taking ability. Washington's offices are full of brilliant people who lacked the patience, persistence and charm to rise as high as they hoped.

Sadly, we haven’t figured out a sure way to teach character. The largest federal study of character-building or social-development programs just reported little progress in improving student behavior or achievement.

But we can tell which Jefferson applicants show signs of the determination and grace that produce great lives. Give more of them a chance, and Jefferson will not only be a more interesting school to attend, but more reflective of the values we want all of our kids to have.
