With a graduation rate of 98% and 84.8% of adults going on to earn bachelor’s degrees, the Piedmont City Unified School District in Alameda County is California’s most successful school district according to rankings from 24/7 Wall St.

The website has published a list of the school district in every U.S. state where students are most likely to succeed. It based the findings on graduation numbers, bachelor’s degrees, child poverty rates, student-to-teacher ratios, and more.

“Children who grow up in households with college-educated parents are more likely to find success in school and go to college,” the site states. “In California’s Piedmont City Unified School District, an astounding 84.8% of adults have a bachelor’s degree, which is well more than double the statewide adult college attainment rate and one of the highest of any school district in America. The district also has a high school graduation rate of 98%, among the highest in both the state and the country.”

The district spends $15,979 per student.
