With the release of state API scores last week, schools in La Mesa and Spring Valley, including those of the local school district showed increases across-the-board.
But another La Mesa-area school – College Prep Middle School – showed marked improvements and its scores rank it among the top 10 in schools across the state.
According to a blog on the school's website, the school registered an API score of 920, which data suggests ranks it No. 8 in the state (see attached PDF). The school, located on Jackson Drive, has an enrollment of 165, and serves grades 5-8. The score indicates a 61-point increase from last year.
