Supervisor Bates Congratulates CUSD on Having Five High Schools Ranked Among the Top 5% in the Country

We previously mentioned the US News and World Report rankings for Capistrano Unified’s High Schools in this article.  Now, Supervisor Patricia Bates has congratulated the schools as well, highlighting the fact that all five of CUSD’s comprehensive high schools evaluated by US News (Tesoro, Dana Hills, San Clemente, Aliso Niguel and Capistrano Valley) were ranked in the top 5% in the country, or in the top 1,000 schools nationwide.  The US News rankings are available here.
