Top LA Public Schools

5/29/20 – The “Top Los Angeles County Public Schools” report identifies schools that are closing the opportunity gap for students of color.

Innovate Public Schools, in partnership with USC’s Sol Price School of Public Policy and Rossier School of Education, recently released their annual report of “Top Los Angeles County Public Schools.” This report identifies schools that are closing the opportunity gap for students of color in low-income communities.


In this year’s report, three Alliance middle schools and fourteen high schools have been named as top public schools for Latinx students. In order to qualify, schools must serve at least 43% of low-income Latinx students or 4% low-income Black/African American students and outperform the statewide average on one or more of the following criteria:

  1. Math and reading scores;
  2. College eligibility;
  3. Suspension rates

Of the 2,075 public schools in Los Angeles County, only 278 made the list of Top Public Schools. According to the report, “this list highlights the schools that are leading the way, but in order for all low-income students of color to thrive academically we must radically transform our educational system. We must all hold ourselves accountable to ensuring that all low-income students of color have access to a world-class education. Being silent enables this systemic racism to continue.”
