Both of Pleasanton's comprehensive high schools received top rankings in the recent U.S. News and World Report's annual list of best American high schools.
Mission San Jose High School in Fremont scored sixth out of the top 10 in California.
California is home to more than 650 schools that were recognized among the magazine's best high schools in its annual listing.
Amador Valley High ranked No. 315 in the nation and No. 47 in California, and Foothill High ranked No. 489 nationwide and No. 79 statewide, according to the ranking by U.S. News and World Report.
"This ranking is a testament to the strong commitment to excellence from our students, parents, educators and support staff at Amador and Foothill," interim superintendent Jim Hansen said. "Congratulations to Amador and Foothill for consistently putting Pleasanton schools on the map."
The schools were ranked based on students' performance during the 2013-14 school year on International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement and state reading and math proficiency tests, data on whether socio-economically disadvantaged students were performing higher than that demographic's statistical average and graduation rate data, according to U.S. News and World Report.
Amador Valley and Foothill both earned the news outlet's Gold Award, the highest possible.
