Calaveras Unified


The Calaveras Unified School District in California serves 9 schools, including 5 elementary schools, 1 middle school, 2 high schools, and 1 alternative school. The district faces significant challenges, with wide disparities in academic performance and student engagement across its schools.

Two elementary schools stand out for their strong academic performance: Mokelumne Hill Elementary and West Point Elementary. These schools have significantly higher proficiency rates on standardized tests compared to the district and state averages. In contrast, the middle school (Toyon Middle) and high schools (Calaveras High and Gold Strike High) generally have lower test scores and higher chronic absenteeism rates.

The Calaveras Unified Alternative-Sierra Hills Education Center stands out as a bright spot, with a high graduation rate and low chronic absenteeism despite serving a more disadvantaged student population. The data also suggests a correlation between socioeconomic status and academic performance, with schools serving higher percentages of students receiving free/reduced lunch tending to have lower test scores.
