Porterville Unified


The Porterville Unified School District in California serves 22 schools, including 10 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 8 high schools, and 1 alternative school. The district's schools display a wide range of academic performance, with standout schools like Harmony Magnet Academy and Porterville Military Academy significantly outperforming the district and state averages, while others, such as Citrus High, struggle with lower graduation rates and test scores.

The data reveals stark contrasts in school performance, with the top-ranked Santa Fe Elementary earning 4 out of 5 stars from SchoolDigger, while the alternative Vine Street Community Day faces significant challenges, including high dropout rates and chronic absenteeism. The schools with the best student-teacher ratios, like Bartlett Middle, tend to perform better, suggesting that class size may be an important factor in student success.

The data also indicates a potential correlation between socioeconomic status and academic achievement, with schools serving higher percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch generally performing worse on measures like test scores and graduation rates. Addressing these disparities in resources and support may be key to improving outcomes across the Porterville Unified School District.
