Which high schools produce the most Nobel Laureates?

According to this source, seven Nobel Laureates -- Leon Cooper, Melvin Schwartz, Steven Weinberg, Sheldon Glashow, Russell Hulse, David Politzer and Roy Glauber -- all physicists, attended Bronx High School, NYC. Three of Australia's Laureates went to St Peter's College, a non-selective school in Adelaide: Lawrence Bragg, Howard Florey and Robin Warren. I wonder which other schools have such feathers in their caps.

(Barry Marshall and Robin Warren won the 20005 Nobel Prize in Medicine, for their revolutionary discovery that stomach and intestinal ulcers are caused not by stress but by a bacterial infection. It took many years before the scientific community would accept their theory.)
