Lakeside Union


The Lakeside Union school district in California serves two elementary schools, Donald E. Suburu and Lakeside, which have similar performance metrics and rankings. Both schools serve a predominantly Hispanic student population from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, with high rates of chronic absenteeism and below-average academic proficiency in English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to the district and state averages.

While neither school stands out as a clear standout, the data reveals some key insights. Donald E. Suburu has a slightly lower statewide ranking and a 1-star rating, compared to Lakeside's 2-star rating. Additionally, Donald E. Suburu has a higher chronic absenteeism rate of 37.3% compared to 32.8% at Lakeside. Both schools have a significant proportion of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, with Donald E. Suburu at 70.77% and Lakeside at 60.48%.

The data suggests that the Lakeside Union school district faces challenges in improving academic performance and addressing high chronic absenteeism rates across its schools. Addressing these issues, particularly in the context of the socioeconomic factors affecting the student population, may be crucial for the district to enhance the overall quality of education for its students.
