The Daily Breeze reported on May 21, 2009 the API scores for the entire South Bay.   (The Academic Performance Index measures the academic performance and growth of schools on a variety of academic measures.)  The good news is that 39 local South Bay campuses performed among the top tenth of California schools.  The state’s goal is 800 – 39.9% of elementary schools met or exceeded that goal, 30.1% of our South Bay Middle Schools and 17.1% of South Bay High Schools met or exceeded the 800 API Score….including South & West Torrance High Schools, Mira Costa High, both Peninsula High and Palos Verdes High Schools, Redondo Union High School, & El Segundo High School.  This is great news for our area.  A huge thank you to all the teachers, administrators, PTA and parents of these high achieving schools!   Good luck next year!
