Rancho Cucamonga’s Well-Educated Population Rancho Cucamonga has always been a well-educated community. In 2010, 28.9% of Rancho Cucamonga’s adults had Bachelor’s, Master’s, Ph.D. or professional degrees. That was above San Bernardino (18.6%) and Riverside (20.3%) counties. It was near to Los Angeles (29.1%), but below San Diego (33.7%) and Orange (36.6%) counties. The share of the city’s adults who completed school with a high school diploma or less education was only 31.1%. That was less than every county in Southern California, including well-educated Orange (34.6%) and San Diego (34.0%) counties. The influx of new residents to the city’s upscale homes has pushed up its average educational level even higher.

The city’s elementary, middle and high schools far exceeded the state average on the Academic Performance Index – a weighted measure of various testing scores that provides the basis for state awards to schools showing the greatest increases in achievement. Elementary students have increased their scores and averaged 879 versus the state’s 809 in 2011. Middle school students have increased their scores in all but one of the years of the test and averaged 842 versus the states 778 in 2011. High school students have increased their scores in all thirteen years of the test and averaged 820 versus the state’s 742 in 2011.

Rancho Cucamonga students taking the high school exit examinations in academic year 2011 had a pass rate of 91% in English, which led the County, and 89% in Math, which ties for the highest score. Both figures were well above the county averages (80%; 79%) and state averages (82%; 83%)
