Twin Ridges Elementary


The Twin Ridges Elementary district is home to a single elementary school, Grizzly Hill, which serves grades K-8 with a total enrollment of 94 students. Grizzly Hill is a public school with a predominantly white student population (75.53%), and a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (81.91%), indicating a relatively low-income community.

Despite its small size, Grizzly Hill is struggling to provide a high-quality education for its students. The school's performance on standardized tests is significantly below the state average across all grade levels and subject areas, with only 8.33% of 3rd-grade students scoring proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 42.96%. Grizzly Hill also has an extremely high chronic absenteeism rate of 71.8%, which is a major concern. The school's statewide ranking has declined over the past few years, from 3,881 out of 5,662 California elementary schools in 2017-2018 to 5,707 out of 5,848 in 2022-2023, with a consistent 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

The data on Grizzly Hill paints a concerning picture of a struggling school that is falling behind state benchmarks across multiple measures. Addressing the school's challenges will require a comprehensive, data-driven approach to identify and address the specific barriers to student achievement, such as resource availability, teacher quality, parental engagement, or other systemic issues. Improving the educational outcomes at Grizzly Hill is crucial for supporting the success of the students and the broader Twin Ridges Elementary community.
