Caruthers Unified


The Caruthers Unified school district in California consists of 3 schools, including 1 elementary school and 2 high schools (one of which is an alternative high school). The district serves a predominantly Hispanic student population, with high rates of free and reduced-price lunch eligibility across all schools.

Caruthers High School stands out as the top-performing school in the district, with strong academic achievement, a high 4-year graduation rate, and a low dropout rate. In contrast, MARC High School, the alternative high school, faces significant challenges, including much lower test scores, a lower graduation rate, and a higher dropout rate, likely due to the specialized nature of its student population.

Across the district, there are notable disparities in academic performance, attendance, and graduation rates. Caruthers Elementary has varying proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math, while Caruthers High significantly outperforms the elementary school. The high rates of chronic absenteeism, particularly at MARC High, also suggest the need for targeted interventions to address the unique challenges faced by the district's student population, which is predominantly from low-income backgrounds.
