Educational Opportunity Center

Summary:

Educational Opportunity Center is a small public charter high school in Yuma, Arizona, serving 107 students in grades 9-12. The school's student population is predominantly Hispanic, making up nearly 89% of the student body.

Despite being in operation for several years, Educational Opportunity Center has consistently struggled academically, ranking 452 out of 469 Arizona high schools and receiving 0 out of 5 stars from SchoolDigger. The school's proficiency rates are significantly below state averages, with 0% proficiency in most subjects. Additionally, the school has very low graduation rates, with only 30.2% of students graduating within 4 years, compared to 90.5% at Kofa High School and 89.7% at Yuma High School, both part of the Yuma Union High School District. The school also struggles with high dropout rates, reaching as high as 30.4% in the 2018-2019 school year.

One potential factor contributing to the school's challenges is the high percentage of economically disadvantaged students, with 91.59% of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, significantly higher than the nearby Kofa High School (74.97%) and Yuma High School (79.86%). The consistently low performance of Educational Opportunity Center suggests a need for targeted interventions and support to address the specific challenges faced by the school and its student population.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
