Benicia Unified


The Benicia Unified School District in California serves students from 4 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 2 high schools, including an alternative high school option. The district's schools demonstrate a mix of high-performing and struggling academic outcomes, with standout schools like Matthew Turner Elementary and Benicia High leading the way.

Matthew Turner Elementary stands out with the highest test scores across multiple grade levels and subjects, as well as the lowest chronic absenteeism rate among the elementary schools. Benicia High also excels, with the highest graduation rate and lowest dropout rate in the district, while also outperforming the district and state on standardized tests. In contrast, Liberty High, the district's alternative high school, struggles academically with low test scores and a high chronic absenteeism rate.

Across the district, there is significant variation in student demographics and socioeconomic factors, with free/reduced lunch rates ranging from 10.24% at Matthew Turner Elementary to 40.09% at Robert Semple Elementary. This suggests potential equity considerations and the need for targeted interventions to ensure all students have access to a quality education, regardless of their background.
