Best Public Schools in Colma, CA


The city of Colma, California is home to two schools - Benjamin Franklin Intermediate (a middle school) and Garden Village Elementary (an elementary school). Both schools serve a diverse student population, with significant Hispanic and Asian representation. However, the academic performance of these schools appears to be average or below average compared to the Jefferson Elementary School District and the state of California.

While the schools have a mix of academic performance, with some grades performing better than the district and state averages, both Benjamin Franklin Intermediate and Garden Village Elementary face challenges in terms of high chronic absenteeism rates, exceeding 25%. Additionally, a significant percentage of students at these schools come from low-income families, with free/reduced lunch rates of 50.6% and 60.63%, respectively. This socioeconomic factor may be contributing to the academic performance challenges observed in these schools.

Another area of concern is the student-teacher ratio at Benjamin Franklin Intermediate, which is the highest among the middle schools in the district at 23:1. This high ratio could be a barrier to providing individualized attention and support to students. Overall, the data suggests that the schools in Colma, California face a combination of academic, attendance, and socioeconomic challenges, which may require targeted interventions and support to improve educational outcomes for the students in this community.
