These schools are part of various districts, such as the Sweetwater Union High District, Chula Vista Elementary District, and several public charter school districts.

The data reveals a significant performance gap between the top-performing and lowest-performing schools in Chula Vista. Eastlake High School, Otay Ranch Senior High, and Olympian High are the top-performing high schools, with high proficiency rates and strong state rankings. In contrast, Chula Vista Senior High, Hilltop Senior High, and Castle Park Senior High have the lowest performance metrics among the high schools.

The data also suggests a correlation between socioeconomic status and academic performance, with schools serving higher percentages of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch tending to have lower proficiency rates, higher chronic absenteeism, and lower graduation rates. However, the presence of high-performing public charter schools, such as Discovery Charter, Arroyo Vista Charter, and Mueller Charter (Robert L.), demonstrates the potential for innovative educational approaches to drive student success, even in a district with overall lower performance.
