When it comes to quality public eduction for Temecula high school students, the local school district ranks well, according to a new report.

According to U.S. News and World Report's annual list of the best schools, three local schools received "silver" medals in 2014.

In Temecula Valley Unified School District, the following schools received a nod from the publication (click on the links to learn more): 
The magazine collected data on more than 19,400 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. A total of 574 California schools (and 4,707 nationally) were ranked for the magazine's prestigious list this year.

The rankings were calculated by looking at student performance on state-mandated standardized tests, evaluating how effectively schools educated black, Hispanic and economically disadvantaged students, and performance on Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams to determine the degree to which schools prepare students for college-level work.

Most of Winchester is in Hemet Unified School District. Temecula Preparatory is right on the boundary of TUSD and HUSD.

It would be nice if the school district would stop accepting transfers from outside the district and attempt to focus on helping those that belong in the district. Maybe then will the results be real for the area. Atheletic and academic trafers alike. Stop the mess School Board!!!!!!! Everyone want to go to Great Oak thus impacting the school with to many students.
