Colton Joint Unified


The Colton Joint Unified School District in California serves 27 schools, including 18 elementary schools, 4 middle schools, 4 high schools, and 1 alternative school. The district's schools serve a diverse student population, with the majority being Hispanic students. While academic performance varies across the schools, a few standout institutions demonstrate the district's potential for excellence.

Grand Terrace High School ranks the highest among the district's high schools, outperforming the state and district averages in English Language Arts and Science proficiency. Similarly, Ruth Grimes Elementary and Terrace View Elementary are the top-performing elementary schools, with significantly higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to the district and state. These standout schools suggest that with the right resources and strategies, the Colton Joint Unified district can achieve high levels of academic success across all its schools.

However, the data also reveals significant disparities in academic performance, with some schools struggling to meet state and district averages. This disparity appears to be correlated with socioeconomic factors, as schools with higher percentages of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch tend to have lower academic achievement. Addressing these equity issues and learning from the successes of the standout schools could be key focus areas for the district as it works to ensure a more equitable and high-performing educational system for all students.
