David Posnack Jewish Day School was one of many schools to win a delegation award this year

Which high schools have the best Model UN team in North America? We devised a rankings system that answers this question in order to recognize the top teams on the circuit for their accomplishments.

Please read the methodology article first before jumping into the rankings. We clarify in the article our purpose for doing rankings, our philosophy that drives what we value in the rankings, and our methodology.

With that said, here are the Top 150 Model UN teams in North America! Please keep into perspective that being ranked anywhere in the top 150 already puts these teams in the top 10% of all schools that attended Model UN conferences this year.

North America’s Best High School Model UN Teams: 2011-2012 Spring Rankings Top 150 “Commendation”

All of these programs have either won several awards at one of the most competitive or large conferences, contended for a delegation award at a regional or mid-sized conference, or won a delegation award at a smaller local conference. Since there are almost no head-to-head matchups at this level in the rankings and there are only marginal differences in the scores, it made more sense to tier the entire top 101-150 than to rank them by individual places. Again, here is the methodology.
