Esparto Unified


The Esparto Unified school district in California consists of 4 schools, including 1 elementary school, 1 middle school, and 2 high schools (one of which is a community high school). The district serves a predominantly Hispanic and low-income student population, with significant academic and attendance challenges across the schools.

While Esparto High School stands out with a relatively high 96.4% 4-year graduation rate and better-than-average performance on 11th grade ELA assessments, the other schools in the district struggle. Madison Community High School is particularly concerning, with only a 50% 4-year graduation rate and an extremely high 83.3% chronic absenteeism rate. Across the district, students perform significantly below state averages on standardized tests, and chronic absenteeism is a major issue, ranging from 23.5% at Esparto Middle School to 83.3% at Madison Community High.

The high percentages of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 64.29% to 80.47%, indicate that the Esparto Unified district serves a predominantly low-income population, which may be a contributing factor to the academic and attendance challenges. Addressing these issues will likely require a comprehensive approach targeting both school-level and district-level initiatives.
