High schools featured in national rankings

Several high schools in the San Diego Unified School District appear on annual lists of "most challenging" and "best" high schools produced by The Washington Post and US News and World Report.

“These national recognitions of our high schools prove that amazing things are happening on our campuses and that our Vision 2020 to create quality schools in every neighborhood is within reach” said Supt. Cindy Marten. “Congratulations to the teachers, students, administrators, school support staff and parents for the hard work and effort it takes to attain this level of excellence.”
