    Orange Unified’s Canyon and Villa Park High Schools were two of numerous of Orange County high schools named to the Newsweek Magazine’s 2010 annual List of America’s Best High Schools. The list includes a total of 1600 high schools from across the nation. Newsweek uses a formula of dividing the number of graduating seniors by the number of Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) or Cambridge (AICE) tests taken at a school. To make the Newsweek list, the schools measured must have an index of at least 1.000 and are in the top 5% of public schools. Villa Park H.S. is number 575 and Canyon H.S. is number 804 on this year’s list. This is the second time on the list for both schools, Villa Park H.S. was on the list in 2006 and Canyon H.S. was on the list in 2008.

    The only other OUSD high school to make the list was El Modena also in 2006. The list is considered prestigious for high schools, so much so that Canyon’s web page boasts of its 2008 placement.
