South Bay Schools Impress Again in 2012

South Bay schools do it again with outstanding API scores for 2012.  Many of the area schools that have seen impressive test scores the past few years continued that trend with some other local schools improving significantly.   Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Palos Verdes schools continued their award winning performances.  Redondo Beach Unified saw every elementary school exceed 900 scores for the first time with big improvements at Beryl Heights, Birney and Madison.  Only Jefferson dropped slightly but had been the top performer for several years.

The top elementary schools in Manhattan Beach were Grandview Elementary and Robinson Elementary each with incredible scores of 970.

Torrance saw 8 elementary schools exceed the 900 mark.  The scores really do indicate just how strong our local systems are with great teachers and parent participation.  Congrats to all of the schools and students.
