Niche Ranks LCUSD First in L.A. Area, Elementaries Make Top 10

The La Cañada Unified School District has been named as the 2023 Best School District in the Metro Los Angeles area, with San Marino Unified coming in No. 2, Arcadia Unified ranking third and Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified fourth, according to Niche, an education rankings platform.
Out of 440 districts in the entire state (including Northern California), LCUSD was ranked No. 4. A trio of Northern California school districts — led by No. 1 Palo Alto Unified — held the top three spots in the statewide rankings.
Palm Crest Elementary, La Cañada Elementary and Paradise Canyon Elementary schools have all been named among the top 10 Best Public Elementary Schools in California for 2023 by Niche, a website that ranks schools and neighborhoods based on public data and user reviews. The three LCUSD elementary schools ranked among the top four in the L.A. Metro area. In the statewide rankings, PCR placed the highest at No. 5, LCE was No. 7 and PCY placed No. 9.

La Cañada High School also received a high standing — it placed second in Best Public High Schools in Los Angeles County and 12th in Best Public High Schools in California.
The results were recently posted on the Niche website, and Superintendent Wendy Sinnette shared the news with the LCUSD community.
“We are so proud of our students, and grateful to our teachers and staff for their outstanding work, as well as to our parents for their incredible support,” Sinnette said in her email. “While LCUSD recognizes that Niche’s rankings are just one measure and that Niche is a company designed to connect colleges and schools with students and families through school profiles, we are still happy to share these impressive results.”
Niche highlighted La Cañada Unified’s schools using academic grades, teacher grades, district grade, culture and diversity, resources and facilities, clubs and activities and sports grades.
