Three AUSD schools in top 200 of Newsweek's high school rankings; San Gabriel High places 9th

San Gabriel High School is ranked ninth among 500 US schools that serve low-income families, according to Newsweek. SGHS was the top ranked school from California. Mark Keppel came in at 107, while Alhambra High was placed at 165. 
 
The ranking is part of Newsweek's "Beating the Odds" feature, which "seeks to identify schools that do an excellent job of preparing their students for college while also overcoming the obstacles posed by students at an economic disadvantage." The ranking takes into account the school's graduation rate, and the percentage of student who are college bound. 
 
All of the Alhambra Unified School District high schools have poverty levels above 65%, according to Newsweek.

  1. Congratulations to our students and teachers.  It's the people who make our city.  Despite a relatively high poverty rate among our childrens' families, they and their teachers have done more for the city through such accomplishments than all the trickle-down policies that consume our precious resources (e.g., grant funding).  For those who are only about their property values, thank our kids and teachers because to a large degree you are riding on their backs.  Think what can happen if we were to put more of a focus on the people!

Stay Informed.
