Santa Monica and Malibu High Schools Ranked in Nation’s Top High Schools

 

Santa Monica High School and Malibu High School have both been ranked in the nation’s top high schools, according to Newsweek.

 

Newsweek’s article, “Top of the Class” (June 8, 2009 issue), ranked Santa Monica High School at number 251 and Malibu High School at number 313.  According to the article, the rankings of America’s public high schools were based on the number of Advanced Placement, Intl. Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school in 2008 divided by the number of graduating seniors.

 

“We are proud of our schools and the level of achievement that they produce,” remarked Superintendent Tim Cuneo.  “This is the result of the District’s commitment to excellence and the dedication of our teachers, support staff, and administration to the success of all students.   A special thank you goes to our parents and communities for their continued support and commitment to our efforts to prepare students to contribute and compete globally.”
