Four APS High Schools Ranked Among Best in State by U.S. News

Four APS High Schools Ranked Among Best in State by U.S. News in 2015

Four Albuquerque Public Schools high schools have been ranked among the top high schools in the state and awarded silver medals by U.S. News and World Report. The four are Albuquerque High, the Early College Academy, La Cueva High and Eldorado High.

        There were 12 New Mexico high schools ranked and receiving either gold or silver medals based on their performance on state assessments and how well they prepare students for college.

        In ranking the schools, U.S. News used student-teacher ratio, college readiness, and proficiency in math and reading. To determine college readiness, the magazine looked at the percentage of students at a high school who took at least one Advanced Placement or AP test and the percentage of those students who scored a passing grade on AP exams.

        Albuquerque High ranked fifth in the state, followed by the Early College Academy at number six, La Cueva High at number seven, and Eldorado at number eight.
