This year’s Pruess graduates all get into college

SAN DIEGO — For the first time, every senior set to graduate from The Preuss School at UCSD Thursday has been accepted to a four-year college or university, school officials said.

The charter school on the UC San Diego campus, which educates mostly inner-city youth, already boasted a high acceptance rate of about 90 percent. The Class of 2013 saw all 96 seniors accepted to college.

The Preuss School is rated high annually in rankings of the nation’s best high schools, and Newsweek named it the top transformative school in the U.S.

“We are extremely proud of all our talented Preuss students,” UCSD Chancellor Pradeep Khosla said. “Their success is a testament not only to their hard work and dedication, but to the educational model that Preuss provides.”

Eighteen seniors are set to continue their education at UCSD, according to the school. Most of the others will attend campuses in the University of California or California State University systems.

Two Preuss students received prestigious Gates Millennium Scholarships, which provide all educational expenses through undergraduate and graduate school to 1,000 students nationally each year.
