US News Rankings for Capistrano Unified High Schools

U.S News and World Report has published its annual rankings of the top public high schools in the country.  We don’t attach a lot of significance to these rankings because there is so much more to a school than a couple of general statistics, but they are useful data points nonetheless.  Below are the state and national rankings and scores for the Capistrano Unified School District’s High Schools.  Congratulations to all of the schools that made the state and national rankings, and a big thank you to all the schools and educators who work so hard to provide a better future for our kids.
