There are different ways to achieve this. However, I prefer a common table expression in order to capture the highest salaries from a table. 

Let us say I want to capture top 5 employees from the employee table based on their salary. Using common table expression I can write a query something like...

With Results As

Select Empno, Ename,Sal,
Dense_Rank() Over (Order by Sal Desc) As DenseRank

Select * from Results where Results.DenseRank<=5

Note: Make sure to use dense rank because it won't skip the ranks when there is repeated data. 

I hope it helps. Thank You. 🙂
