Oakhills School, a kindergarten through third grade campus in Granite Bay, scored the highest for an individual school at 949. Greenhills School, which also serves K-3 students, experienced the greatest increase over last year, earning 24 more points to reach 912.

Roseville City School District’s 17 schools earned a district average API of 874, with Blue Oaks Elementary School achieving the highest score at 928. Eich Intermediate School saw the greatest increase of 30 points to reach 883.
