U.S. News & World Report today released its annual ranking of the best public high schools in the United States, and dozens from Los Angeles Unified made the list.

In gauging the success of the schools, the national publication considered graduation rates, college readiness and state test scores as factors, as well as how well disadvantaged students fared at the school. The publication looked at nearly 30,000 high schools around the nation, and also listed their ranking within their home state.

The highest-ranked school in L.A. Unified was the Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies, a school-wide magnet that enrolls about 1,600 students in Grades 6-12, which was rated 73rd nationwide and No. 10 in California. Five other District schools also scored in the top 100 of the more than 650 California high schools that were ranked by U.S. News.

“We are very proud that so many of our exceptional schools were included on this prestigious list,” Superintendent Michelle King said. “This recognition reflects the hard work and commitment of our principals, teachers and school-site employees to the success of our students.”
