Nice work, Crescenta Valley.  

U.S. News and World Report placed Crescenta Valley High in the top 3% of schools in the country. The rankings rely on Advanced Placement scores and demographic information.  

Its ranking as 44th best in California puts it within the top 6% of schools in the state, which includes public, private, charter and competitive admission campuses.  

Even though California is close to being a failed state — especially when it comes to education funding — the state finished third (behind Massachusetts and Connecticut) in terms of the percent of schools that ranked highest in the magazine’s College Readiness Index.  

California and Massachusetts are considered to lead the nation in academic standards.
