Latest CA Public High School and School District Rankings are In

There is no question that public schools are a major topic of discussion with the confirmation of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, but they’re always in discussion when it comes to a family deciding a community to buy a home in.

nicheNiche, a website for researching schools and neighborhoods, used a variety of factors including SAT/ACT scores, student-teacher ratio, the quality of colleges students consider and reviews from students and parents for its ranking. There are multiple rankings of schools to choose from, but what we like about Niche is that they have limited their scope to only schools and neighborhoods and have really developed their algorithms that churn out the results. Speaking of results, here are where some of our local districts and high schools rank:


8. Acalanes Union High School District

13. Pleasanton Unified School District

27. San Ramon Unified School District

37. Dublin Unified School District

52. Fremont Unified School District
