Notes: This week’s poll includes four sources: Hoopniks, ESPN, USA Today and PrepNation. MaxPreps also released polls during this period but I haven’t included them, due to the fact that they segment private academies from public high schools. I am not sure how, or if, I will incorporate their rankings back into the cumulative rankings.

The top two in the poll remain the same, although all polls have Montverde Academy at #1, with the exception of USA Today, which has Findlay Prep at the top spot. However, movement in the rest of the rankings, as polls vary widely on schools such as Prime Prep, Huntington Prep and St. Anthony. Once again I’m listing the top 30.

Finally: In the poll listing, the ‘high’ value represents the highest ranking in any poll that team received during the ranking period.
‘Qty’ represents how many polls they were ranked in. ‘AVG’ represents their average ranking in all polls where they were ranked.
