The California Academy of Mathematics and Science has earned a spot on Newsweek’s list of America’s top 1,000 high schools.
CAMS ranked 310 on this year’s list based upon criteria that Newseek revamped to include graduation rates, college entrance, Advanced Placement tests taken, average SAT scores, average AP scores, and AP courses offered. The list was shorter and even more selective than Newsweek lists of years past.
“This year, our ranking highlights the best 1,000 public high schools in the nation – the ones that have proven to be the most effective in turning out college-ready grads,” states the Newsweek article on the magazine’s partner website, thedailybeast.com.
CAMS is a high school run by the Long Beach Unified School District on the campus of Cal State Dominguez Hills.
