A new list from Niche.com has ranked Louisiana's public schools, and some of the area's smaller schools are getting the highest marks -- at least for Southwest Louisiana.

Of the Top 100 high schools on the list, there weren't a great number of local schools -- and no Lake Charles schools made the list. So how did they come up with the list? According to Niche's methodology, they ranked student happiness, academics, diversity and extracurricular offerings.

Here's how the local schools panned out:

1. Benjamin Franklin High -- New Orleans
2. Baton Rouge Magnet High -- Baton Rouge
