Whitney Ranked Best High School in California; Cerritos, Artesia, Gahr High Schools Ranked Among the Best by US News

Three high schools in the ABC Unified School District in Cerritos are among the best high schools in America according to U.S. News & World Report.

Whitney High School ranked 14th nationally and 1st among California schools.

Cerritos High ranked 434 nationally and 58th among California schools.

Artesia was ranked 416 among California schools.

Gahr High School ranked 3,630 nationally and 525th among California schools.

Anita Narayan, managing editor of education at U.S. News, said the aim of the rankings is simple: give families more information about the schools in their areas..

“By evaluating more schools, the new edition expands that focus so all communities can see which schools in their area are successfully serving their students — including historically underserved populations,” Narayan said in a news release.

Board President Ernie Nishii told HMG-LCCN, “The success of our district and our high schools is a hallmark of the great partnership amongst parents, teachers, administrators, and the board working together.  That partnership includes the community,  local foundations and businesses and city leaders.”

ABCUSD Superintendent Dr. Mary Siue said, “We are very excited that Whitney High School has been selected again by U.S. News and World Report as #1 in California and #14 in the country. Equally as important is the work at Cerritos High School and Gahr High School who also made the list this year. This outcome is the strong collective work of our students, families, staff as well as District support that allows us to constantly improve and to move forward.”

Rounding out the top ten school in California were:

#2 Oxford Academy, Cypress

#3 Dr. T.J. Owens Gilroy Early College Academy, Gilroy

#4 Pacific Collegiate Charter, Santa Cruz 

#5California Academy of Mathematics and Science, Carson

#6 Lowell High School, San Francisco

#7 Preuss School UCSD, La Jolla

#8 Harbor Teacher Preparation Academy, Wilmington

#9 Western Center Academy, Hemet 

#10 University High School, Fresno.

    Again, Palos Verdes Schools ranked higher then ABC/Whitney | Cerritos just does not have a village to support schools & needs to get its housing in order first. Whitney HS is not on top.

      May I ask where you’re getting your information from?

        Many of these educational reporting agencies are paid subscriptions of yearly fees in order to get in to the rating system. Some are just comparing statewide, while others report national and some have them so fine tuned, reports are based on school sizes, etc.

          Palos Verdes High ranked 156th place in California according to US News. US News compares the schools on a National and statewide level. I’ll have to say that the top two schools in California for 2019 are test admitted schools, so these schools already have a clear cut advantage over a school which admits students based only on a geographic school zone.
