Using 2018-19 state assessment data from the U.S. Department of Education, the rankings only include public schools and focus on both proficiency and performance for math and reading. More than 80,000 public elementary and middle schools around the U.S. were ranked at the state and district level, and separate categories were also created for Best Charter School and Best Magnet School.
California also has the most ranked middle schools (2,319), with four sites in Dublin, San Ramon and Sunol all earning spots in the top 100 this year.
Gale Ranch and Windemere Ranch middle schools in San Ramon made the list at No. 55 and No. 21, and Fallon Middle in Dublin was ranked No. 50 while Sunol Glen School in unincorporated Sunol was ranked No. 31 in the state.
Earlier this year, both Foothill and Amador Valley high schools in Pleasanton were ranked No. 61 and No. 62 in the state, along with Dougherty Valley High (No. 23) in San Ramon.
