Dublin High School Named Top Tri-Valley High School by Newsweek (America’s Top High Schools 2015)

August 19, 2015

Dublin High School beat all other Tri-Valley schools (both public and charter) in the latest Newsweek America’s Top High Schools rankings for 2015, making the exclusive list of the top 200 high schools in the United States. According to Newsweek, the rankings “assess schools based on a broad range of data to determine which institutions do the best job of preparing students for college.” Dublin High School recently received the highest accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

According to the Newsweek rankings, Dublin High School and the following neighboring schools made the top 500:

“We are very proud of the efforts of our teachers, support staff, leaders and parents to ensure that every Dublin student is College and Career Ready,” said Superintendent Stephen Hanke. ”Results like these validate that we are on the right track.”

“The Newsweek rankings confirm something we already knew, that Dublin High School is one of the best public high schools in our state,” Board President Amy Miller said. “This distinction is reflective of the vision of leadership, which would be unattainable without the efforts of students and staff who consistently strive for excellence and achievement. We are proud to be recognized on a national stage.”

The Newsweek methodology includes, for shortlisted schools such as Dublin High School, a college readiness index based on the following six indicators:

  • College Enrollment Rate—25 percent
  • Graduation Rate—20 percent
  • Weighted AP/IB/Dual Enrollment composite—17.5 percent
  • Weighted SAT/ACT composite—17.5 percent
  • Student Retention (change in student enrollment between 9th and 12th grades; this measure is intended to control for dropout rates)—10 percent
  • Counselor-to-Student Ratio—10 percent

Congratulations to Dublin High School students and staff. Go Gaels!
