Several of our local schools are included in the top 1200 list published by Newsweek...

Quote

Public schools are ranked according to a ratio devised by Jay Mathews: the number of Advanced Placement, Intl. Baccalaureate and/or Cambridge tests taken by all students at a school in 2006 divided by the number of graduating seniors. All of the schools on the list have an index of at least 1.000; they are in the top 5 percent of public schools measured this way.


Sacramento:
Rank School Location State Index Subs. Lunch E & E
345 Mira Loma * Sacramento Calif. 2.177 34.000 40.000
718 Rio Americano Sacramento Calif. 1.576 8.400 28.800
889 Kennedy Sacramento Calif. 1.383 33.400 20.300

I searched all of the other areas in and around Sacramento and no other local schools were included in the list. If you believe this to be in error, email the author of the article at challenge@washpost.com.

This is always good news for people wanting to have kids, or already have them in the school system or even people with children moving to the area. it is nice to know that the rankings are showing that these schools do care about children.
