In the News | SF Chronicle crunches data to show UC admits for every public high school in CA

Using University of California data for the 2021 fall semester and data on senior enrollment from the California Department of Education to calculate application rates for each high school, San Francisco Chronicle reporter Nami Sumida built charts that show how many high school seniors applied to a UC and how many were accepted, the average GPAs for applicants applying to each UC campus, race and ethnicity of admits to each campus, and more.

According to the data, in the 2020-2021 school year, 142 out of 211 PHS seniors applied to a UC (67%) and 87 out of the 142 were accepted (61%). You can delve deeper into the data HERE. The average GPA for a Piedmont applicant who was accepted to any of the seven UC campuses was over 4.0.
