Moreno Valley Unified School District has four schools that earned honors as “Best” high schools in U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best High Schools rankings, which were published today:
- Canyon Springs High School
- Moreno Valley High School
- Valley View High School
- Vista Del Lago High School
U.S. News 2021 Best High Schools numerically ranked nearly 18,000 schools nationwide this year. Schools with a national rank in the top 40% (#7143 or higher) achieved status as “Best” high schools.
“Our district’s mission is to provide an equitable education for all students to be prepared for college and/or a viable career path for a successful life,” said Moreno Valley Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Martinrex Kedziora. “It’s gratifying to see all four high schools on this list because it demonstrates that our students are graduating at a high rate and receiving the preparation necessary to succeed in life.”
The Best High Schools rankings, available online only, are produced in conjunction with RTI International, a global research firm. U.S. News doesn’t collect data directly from high schools – all data comes directly from official third-party sources. U.S. News receives AP and IB data directly from the College Board and International Baccalaureate, respectively, for use in the rankings. The state assessment data and graduation rates are from each state, and other data comes from the U.S. Department of Education Common Core of Data.
“Students need a solid foundation in order to be competitive and successful in college or a career,” added School Board President Darrell Peeden. “Today’s list validates our work as a district in getting our students prepared for both.”
