SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
San Juan Hills High School in San Juan Capistrano was ranked as one of the top 100 of 1,700 public schools in California, according to rankings released by website Niche.com.
Out of 18,000 public schools nationally, the school was ranked at 473.
Niche’s website says it does its rankings based on a “rigorous analysis of academic and student life data” from the U.S. Department of Education that includes tests scores and college data.
Niche evaluates schools on academics, teachers, school diversity, college prep, health and safety and in all of those areas gave SJHHS a grade of A.
