  1. The California 2004 Base API is the source of the school rankings in this map.
  2. 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.
  3. Alternative Schools receive API scores but do not receive ranks
