At the end of September, the state released the latest API score reports for California schools. You can view the scores by visiting the links posted on my website or by clicking here. The scores are organized by county, with API scores assigned to each school district within the county. and each school within the district. This data is a great way for you to compare schools when looking to buy or rent a home. These scores are calculated using results from the standarized STAR tests given out to students each spring. They can range anywhere from 200 (low-scoring) to 1000 (high-scoring).
