I don't know about racially diverse, mostly white, black, and Asian, but my kids school was a popular magnet school within a middle class urban n'hood that also bussed in kids from some of the poorest inner city n'hoods. So economically very, very diverse.

I dont know if its the most diverse, but this has to be pretty close.

Naaman Forest High School in Garland, Texas:

White: 34.4%
Hispanic: 30.0%
Black: 19.6%
Asian: 15.5%

And here is my old High School. Not well balanced across the board, but had lots of Koreans, Chinese, Vietnamese, etc.

South High School Torrance, CA:

White: 48.6%
Asian: 35.3%
Hispanic: 10.7%
Black: 1.7%

So far Naaman Forrest High School looks like its the most diverse mentioned in this thread. Doubt if it is the most diverse nation wide tho.

I think to be in the running, you need at least 15% of every racial group.

Actually, Naaman Forest is similar to Schenectady High, but just switch the Black and Hispanic percentages, give or take. Schenectady High School - Public School

I think the OP was getting at the fact that it is more rare to find a school with a decent balance, including a relatively high percentage of Native American students given that Native Americans make up around 1% of the national population.
