Glendale Unified High Schools Rank Among Nation’s Best by U.S. News & World Report

GLENDALE, CA – All four Glendale Unified high schools rank among the nation’s best once again according to the U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best High Schools ranking. All four ranked in the top 21% of the 25,553 schools considered with Clark Magnet High in the top 2%, Crescenta Valley High in the top 5%, Hoover High in the top 17%, and Glendale High in the top 21%.

According to U.S. News & World Report rankings methodology, the highest ranked schools, “are those whose students demonstrated outstanding outcomes above expectations in math and reading state assessments, earned qualifying scores in an array of college-level exams, and graduated in high proportions.”

“We are incredibly proud of our Glendale Unified high schools that continue to rank among the nation’s best,” said Glendale Unified Board of Education President Shant Sahakian. “We are working together to foster a positive culture of learning and maximize academic outcomes for every child in our district.”
