Palos Verdes High Schools rank in top 175 in nation

Newsweek has released it's list of the top high schools in the nation and the two Palos Verdes High schools ranked in the top 175 in the nation. Palos Verdes Peninsula High School's rank was #50 and Palos Verdes High School was ranked #174.

 

                        

Two other South Bay High Schools ranked in the top 300, with West Torrance High at #238 and South Torrance at #289.

Newsweek looked at six measurements and weighted them to come up with a “college readiness index.” The rankings are meant to show how well high schools do at preparing students for college.
