Elementary Schools in Natomas Unified


The Natomas Unified School District in California is home to 11 elementary schools serving students from kindergarten through 6th grade. These schools vary significantly in their academic performance, student demographics, and other key metrics, with a clear divide between the higher-performing and lower-performing institutions.

At the top of the pack is Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep Elementary, a public charter school that ranks among the top 23% of California elementary schools. With strong test scores, low chronic absenteeism, and a diverse student population, this school stands out as a model of academic excellence. Other high-performing schools in the district include Heron and Two Rivers Elementary, which also boast above-average test scores and relatively low chronic absenteeism rates.

In contrast, several schools in the Natomas Unified district struggle with lower academic performance, higher chronic absenteeism, and larger populations of economically disadvantaged students. Schools like Jefferson, American Lakes, and Bannon Creek have significantly lower test scores and face greater challenges in supporting student achievement. Addressing these disparities and ensuring equitable educational opportunities for all students in the Natomas Unified School District will be a critical priority going forward.
