Capistrano Unified School District Again Ranked as one of California's Top Districts
The 2018 rankings released this month rank elementary, middle and high schools as well as school districts. According to Niche.com,
Capistrano Unified School District ranked #37 out of California's 474 districts, and #7 in Orange County. CUSD earned an overall grade of A from Niche, earning an A- in academics and and diversity, and an A+ in teachers and college prep and B- in clubs and activities; and B+ in health and safety.
To arrive at these rankings, Niche looked at data from the U.S. Department of Education as well as test scores, college data and ratings collected from Niche users. The methodology for each category of ranking varied.
Niche assigns a standardized score for each factor, which is then weighted before an overall score is calculated for each school district. The overall scores are again standardized and some districts are disqualified from receiving a final letter grade if there isn't enough data. School districts are then ranked numerically and assigned grades.
Niche's data for its K-12 school district rankings comes from various sources including the U.S. Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics and the Civil Rights Data Collection. The rankings also rely on data that is self-reported by Niche users and schools. Please click on the following for further details: Capistrano Unified School District Rankings: Niche.com
