Albert Einstein Academy Makes Top 10 High Schools List

Charter School Capital

September 11, 2014


Optimized-Champs_090Albert Einstein Academy for Letters, Arts and Science, a California charter school, has been ranked one of the Top 10 High Schools in America, according to Newsweek. The Santa Clarita charter school is listed #2 out of the top high schools in the country.
This year, Newsweek took an innovative approach to ranking high schools, taking students’ poverty levels into account in their scoring.
“The question, What Are America’s Top Schools? has different answers depending on whether or not student poverty is taken into account. We realized that rather than trying to make an all-encompassing list, we could reward more great schools by examining performance from more than one vantage point. For this reason, Newsweek has published “America’s Top High Schools,” a ranking of schools based solely on achievement, and “Beating the Odds,” a ranking of schools that factors in student poverty. To measure student poverty levels, we used the percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at each school.”
Congratulations to Albert Einstein Academy for Newsweek’s recognition of the school’s great program. Charter School Capital is proud to support the school’s efforts.
