Grass Valley Elementary


The Grass Valley Elementary School District in California consists of 4 schools, including 3 elementary schools and 1 middle school, serving students from kindergarten through 8th grade. The district's performance varies, with some standout schools like Grass Valley Charter and Bell Hill Academy outperforming the district and state averages, while others like Lyman Gilmore Middle and Margaret G. Scotten Elementary lag behind.

Grass Valley Charter, a charter school, stands out as the highest-performing in the district, with the highest test scores across multiple grade levels and subjects, as well as the lowest chronic absenteeism rate at 28%. Bell Hill Academy also performs well, with test scores that exceed the district and state averages in many areas and the second-lowest chronic absenteeism rate at 33.2%. In contrast, Lyman Gilmore Middle lags behind the top-performing elementary schools in test scores, but still manages to outperform the district and state averages in several areas.

The Grass Valley Elementary School District as a whole appears to be underperforming compared to the state, with most schools scoring below the California averages in ELA and math proficiency. High rates of chronic absenteeism, ranging from 28% to 41.9%, and a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage, may be contributing factors to the district's overall lower performance. Addressing these challenges could be key focus areas for the district to improve student outcomes.
