U.S. News & World Report has released its 2018 Best High School Rankings, and Morgan Hill Unified School District is exceptionally proud to have Ann Sobrato High School on that list, again. Awarded a silver medal and ranked #99 for California high schools — up 31 places from two years ago — it pushes Sobrato High to the top one hundred high schools in California and the top three percent across the nation.
“This recognition means a lot to our staff and students who work so hard every day,” said Sobrato Principal Courtney Macko. “Increasing our rank from #130 to #99 is an enormous accomplishment and illustrates the commitment of our students to achieving their academic goals with the support of an amazing staff.”
U.S. News & World Report evaluated 2,100 high schools across California, over 20,000 across the country, to compile their list. Schools are awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals based on their performance on state assessments, graduation rates and how well they prepared students for college. The comprehensive ranking methodology is based on the following key principles: a great school must serve all of its students well, not just those who are college-bound, and that it must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show it is successfully educating its student body across a range of performance indicators.
Sobrato High School is one of three public high schools in the Morgan Hill School District. Sobrato currently serves over 1,400 students and boasts a 94% graduation rate, well above the state average of 83%. The high school was opened in 2004 and built in the memory of Ann Sobrato’s dedication to children in this community.
