IUSD high schools ranked among the nation’s best by Newsweek and The Daily Beast


IUSD’s four comprehensive high schools have earned spots on yet another list of the nation’s best.

Earlier this month, we told you about the U.S. News & World Report breakdown. Well, this time around it’s the merged forces of Newsweek and The Daily Beast, which recently ranked the 2,000 public high schools they consider the best at producing college-ready graduates.

What’s most impressive is that Newsweek’s lineup of “America’s Best High Schools” places all of IUSD’s comprehensive sites within the top 600. University High School leads the way at No. 102, followed by Northwood High at No. 156, Woodbridge High at No. 231 and Irvine High at No. 585.

Published on May 6, the Newsweek/Daily Beast list is said to be based on a formula that factors in graduation rates, college acceptance rates, advance placement tests and college-entrance exams. You can read the full methodology here.
