A great school district is a draw for many parents where they’re planning to make a big move, as they’ll want their children to receive the best education possible. From the team at U.S. Career Institute, this new infographic analyzes both math and reading proficiency scores to determine the best high school in every U.S. state. This infographic pulls data on both reading and math proficiency scores to determine the overall rankings.
The most populous state in the United States is California, and the research from the U.S. Career Institute shows that the best high school in the state is North Hollywood’s Science Academy STEM Magnet. The math proficiency score there is more than 99%, with the reading proficiency coming in at 98%.
