Compton Unified School District

Compton High School was named one of U.S. News Best High Schools. The school earned high National and metro-area rankings in the 2023-2024 Best High Schools report, which U.S. News just released.

“We’re deeply honored to receive this recognition,” said Compton High School Principal Dr. Larry Natividad. “Compton High School’s gains are because we are continuing to build systems and processes for every scholar to feel like they belong.”

The 2023-2024 Best High Schools rankings ranked 17,680 out of nearly 25,000 reviewed public high schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. U.S. News works with RTI International, a global nonprofit social science research firm, to assess and rank all eligible public high schools nationally and also produces distinct high school rankings of charter schools and magnet schools. By earning a national ranking in the top 40 percent, Compton High School achieved the status as a U.S. News Best High School.
