San Marcos H.S. Rated 11th in Country by Magazine
U.S. News & World Report, working with the American Institute for Research, is out with its list of the top high schools in the U.S. San Marcos High School comes in 11th in the country, and the Preuss School at the University of California San Diego comes in 44th among the top 100. The schools were rated on college-readiness preparation, how least-advantaged students perform, and whether students perform better than the statistically expected average for the state. The magazine and institute studied 21,776 U.S. high schools for the 2009–2010 school year.
