Notes:
  1. The State Rank is determined by a school's API Score in comparison to all other schools in California. (1 is the worst, 10 is the best). An equal number of schools occupy each rank. * This rank comes from the 2013 California Academic Performance Index (API) Growth report.
  2. The API Score is a number between 200 and 1000 that reflects a school's performance on statewide student assessments administered in 2013.
  3. Alternative Schools receive APIs but do not receive ranks
  4. Parent Education is the average of all responses where "1" represents "Not a high school graduate" and "5" represents "Graduate school."
