Palos Verdes High Schools Again Rank High in 2022!
Palos Verdes home owners were happy to see that 2 of our local high schools were in the National High School rankings by US News & World Report. This year they evaluated more than 17,800 schools nationwide (including 1,603 in California). As both of our local high schools ranked high, it indicates how hard school counselors and staff work to challenge students with advanced placement college-level courses and tests.
Palos Verdes Peninsula High School was ranked #324 in the nation and Palos Verdes High School was #1,750 in this years review. The new 2022 list places Palos Verdes Peninsula High School among the top 50 schools in California coming in at #42. Palos Verdes High is #246 in the state. Both of these schools showed a graduation rate of more than 98 percent, and both with a college readiness index of more than 90 percent. These schools rated high in the system for college readiness, graduation rates and college bound students. District success is not accidental. Both Palos Verdes and Peninsula High schools receive high rankings in the rating system because of their open door policy to college level courses. Students at both high schools are encouraged to stretch themselves and enroll in high level courses.
The Peninsula Education Foundation, which helps support our local school district with funding for counselors, teachers and school programs, works hard to make sure that these high schools receive the support they need. This funding is necessary to keep these programs running to help our students achieve these high goals.
