I certainly don't wish to discredit the elementary and intermediate schools, but I will most certainly pass on enrolling my son in a high school where drugs are dealt across the street.

P.S. In the rankings you listed above from greatschools, you forgot to include:

Jordan High - 4
Cabrillo High - 4
Millikan - 6

(I am not even listing the high schools in LB that rated lower than 4)

Lest someone think that the list you presented is all-inclusive. Just out of curiousity, would you allow the LBUSD to place your teenager in whichever HS they wish?
I would not allow my child to attend every school in Long Beach. That is irrelevant as I don't have to. LB is a huge city. LBUSD is very large. I recommeded that the poster live in Belmont Shore. The high school for Belmont Shore is Wilson. I would send my child to Wilson happily. It is a very good school with very strong honor programs. (By the way I went to Palos Verdes High School so I have a good reference point for outstanding high schools.)

I did not intend to present a total list of LB schools. I presented a list representative of the 3rd district of LB which is bigger than PV, MB, etc in total. Listing schools in poorer parts of Long Beach is not a picture of the very good schools in the affluent parts of Long Beach. It's apples to oranges.
