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

La Cueva, Albuquerque High, Eldorado, Early College Academy, Volcano Vista High & Sandia among the top New Mexico schools.

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

There were 14 New Mexico high schools awarded gold 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.

La Cueva High ranked fifth in the state, followed by Albuquerque High at number six. Eldorado High ranked 9th in the state, followed by the Early College Academy at number 10. Volcano Vista High ranked 13th in the state, followed by Sandia High at number 14.
