Sunrise Middle District


The Sunrise Middle District contains a single public charter middle school, Sunrise Middle, which serves grades 5-8 with a total enrollment of 308 students. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student population (94.16%) and a high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (80.19%), indicating a predominantly low-income community.

Academically, Sunrise Middle struggles to meet state averages in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science proficiency. The school's proficiency rates range from 10.47% to 49.41% across different grade levels and subject areas, consistently falling below the state's performance. Additionally, the school faces a significant challenge with chronic absenteeism, with a rate of 44.9% for the 2022-2023 school year, which is much higher than the state average.

Despite these challenges, Sunrise Middle has maintained a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger, with its statewide ranking fluctuating between 668 out of 894 California middle schools in 2020-2021 and 1545 out of 2788 in 2022-2023. To improve student outcomes, the school and district may need to focus on addressing the root causes of the lower academic performance and high chronic absenteeism, as well as supporting the socioeconomic needs of the student community.
