Where Are The Top Public Elementary Schools In California? San Ramon And Pleasanton, Apparently…

Students at Acalanes High School mourned the loss of a peer Friday.

A recently released ranking of the best Public Elementary Schools in California has placed several local school on its “Top 100 List.”

The ranking is based on analysis of key statistics and millions of reviews from students and parents using data from the U.S. Department of Education, according to researchers.

Ranking factors include state test scores, student-teacher ratio, student diversity, teacher quality, grade school ratings, and the overall quality of the school district. As you can see from their listing of the Top 100, several schools from San Ramon and Pleasanton made the grade.


  1. Oh, look! A list. How thoughtful of them to list home buying opportunities next to these schools, schools on a list.

  2. I am looking at the picture above, thinking. Is she taking a test? Surely, 4 lines in the box can’t be the answer to every test question. Ok, maybe I should just quit thinking for a while.

  3. Interesting, I read down the list and saw some Beverly Hills schools also listed ( just before Alamo school) so I clicked the Realtor link, and was surprised to find homes there almost more reasonable than here. ie: 2,600 square foot home in B.H. for 1.6 million. Made me realize how crazy expensive the Bay Area has become.
    And as a poster above here said, how convenient that the realtor link was right in school list. Hmmm.

  4. Meh. I question the methodology of this “ranking.” Lamorinda schools are good schools, albeit they are punished unfairly by the state’s LCFF resulting in a desperate need for revenue or a serious reduction in expenses.

  5. So there are 12 elementary schools in Palo Alto/Stanford and coincidentally these rank #1-12 of the Top 100. Sure thing… Also 10 of the 12 have a diversity grade of A- or better and the other two schools are B. Uh…ok….One question: do the same 5 kids of color get bussed from school to school through the day or do they just travel at lunchtime making the rounds two schools per day?

    I wonder where is the notice that this is a pad advertisement for certain real companies???

  6. Lamorinda schools are good schools, but there are good schools in a lot of areas in CA. It would be nice if we made the cut, but we didn’t. People are so sensitive.

    Palo Alto home prices – wow.

  7. I would still like to know what the answers are to that test. I don’t think Jinny is going to college.
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that…
