A Global Leader in Education Reform with Nationally Recognized High Schools
The Long Beach Unified School District has earned an international reputation as one of the finest school systems. LBUSD is among the world’s top 20 educational institutions — and one of the top three in the U.S. — in terms of sustained and significant improvements, according to a McKinsey & Company report. It is also a winner of The Broad Prize for Urban Education, recognizing America's best urban district for increasing student achievement. LBUSD high schools have repeatedly earned high marks in national rankings by The Washington Post, Newsweek, and U.S. News.
This is a perfect app for parents and students going through the High School Choice process in LBUSD. The timeline is especially helpful if you are trying to get information at various events. Great job LBUSD.
