Alum Rock Union Elementary


The Alum Rock Union Elementary school district in California serves 22 schools, including 17 elementary schools and 5 middle schools. The district encompasses a diverse range of academic performance, with some standout schools as well as lower-performing ones.

Among the top-performing schools in the district is Adelante Dual Language Academy, which has the highest English Language Arts and Mathematics assessment scores compared to the district and state averages. Another strong performer is Millard McCollam Elementary, which ranks in the top 30% of California elementary schools. In contrast, some schools struggle with high chronic absenteeism rates, such as Cesar Chavez Early Learning Center, which has a 40.9% chronic absenteeism rate.

Schools with higher free/reduced lunch rates, such as Russo/McEntee Academy at 88.86%, tend to have lower test scores and higher chronic absenteeism.
