Contra Costa School of Performing Arts District


The Contra Costa School of Performing Arts District is home to a single public charter high school, Contra Costa School of Performing Arts, which serves grades 6-12. While the school has a diverse student population, it has seen a concerning decline in its academic performance and statewide ranking in recent years.

Contra Costa School of Performing Arts stands out as the district's only public charter high school, but its academic performance has been lagging. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Math, and Science are generally lower than the statewide averages, particularly in Math where the school's rates are well below the state's. Additionally, the school's SchoolDigger ranking has dropped significantly, going from a high of 517 out of 2,133 California high schools in 2018-2019 to 1,406 out of 2,335 in 2022-2023, suggesting a decline in the school's overall performance.

Despite these academic challenges, the school does have a relatively diverse student population, with 40.47% Hispanic, 29.91% White, 11.73% African American, and 3.52% Asian students. However, with 36.95% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, the school likely serves a population with lower socioeconomic status, which can be a factor in academic performance. Overall, the data suggests that Contra Costa School of Performing Arts is facing significant challenges in preparing its students for academic success, and further investigation would be needed to understand the root causes and identify potential areas for improvement.
