Teachers, parents and administrators at Los Gatos and Saratoga high schools continually say their schools have some of the brightest students around. And the latest California Academic Performance Index scores show they might be right.
Saratoga High received an API score of 933, with Los Gatos High coming in with a score of 886. API scores range from a low of 200 to a high of 1,000.
“Our goal is to have our students graduate from our campuses as well-rounded citizens prepared for college and/or a chosen career. One component of that is academic achievement. This new API information validates the efforts of our students, teachers, classified staff and parent community to promote this success,” said Bob Mistele, superintendent of the Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District.
Saratoga High received one of the highest scores in the county. Its score ranked third in public high schools behind Monta Vista High (956) and Lynbrook High (946).
Saratoga’s score of 933 matched its 2011 score.
