King City Union


The King City Union School District serves 4 schools, including 3 elementary schools and 1 middle school, in the King City area. While the district faces some academic challenges, a few standout schools emerge based on the available data.

Del Rey Elementary stands out with the lowest student-teacher ratio (22.3) among the elementary schools and relatively stronger performance in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency compared to the district and state averages. Similarly, King City Arts Magnet outperforms the district and state in English Language Arts proficiency for grades 4 and 5, and has a lower student-teacher ratio (23.7) than Santa Lucia Elementary (23.9).

However, the district as a whole faces significant challenges, with all schools performing below the state averages in academic proficiency, particularly Chalone Peaks Middle School, which has the lowest proficiency rates in the district. Additionally, high chronic absenteeism rates, especially at King City Arts Magnet and Del Rey Elementary, and consistently high rates of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch across all schools (84.12% to 90.42%) indicate equity concerns that the King City Union School District may need to address to improve student outcomes.
