There is a reason why Silicon Valley is one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. Home to top tech companies, coolest start-ups, thriving job market, and 300 days of sunshine each year – its not hard to think why!

But there is one other reason too – top schools. Silicon Valley boasts of some of the best schools in the country, proven yet again when 6 Silicon Valley High Schools ranked in the top 25 in the country.

Take a look at the top Silicon Valley high schools:

  • Ranked #2 – The Harker School: Private school in San Jose, CA. API score and rating not available.
  • Ranked #7 – Lynbrook High: Public school in San Jose/Cupertino, CA. 2013 API score of 942. 10/10 rating.
  • Ranked #12 – Henry M. Gunn High: Public school in Palo Alto, CA. 2013 API score of 917. 9/10 rating.
  • Ranked #15 – Monta Vista High: Public school in Cupertino, CA. 2013 API score of 956. 10/10 rating.
  • Ranked #18 – Mission San Jose High: Public school in Fremont, CA. 2013 API score of 951. 10/10 rating.
  • Ranked #20 – Leland High: Public school in San Jose, CA. 2013 API score of 895. 9/10 rating.


State of California takes 8 out of the top 25 schools, state of New York has 5 and all other states far behind. I was astonished that just two states will have more than 50% representation in this list.
