Socioeconomic factors, as indicated by free/reduced lunch rates, appear to be closely linked to academic outcomes, with higher-poverty schools generally underperforming their more affluent counterparts. For example, James C. Enochs High has a free/reduced lunch rate of 40.79%, while Robert Elliott Alternative Education Center has a rate of 81.15%. This disparity is reflected in the schools' test scores, with Enochs High having 63.84% of students proficient or better in 11th-grade English Language Arts, compared to just 8.14% at Robert Elliott.

Chronic absenteeism, defined as missing 10% or more of the school year, is a significant challenge across the district, ranging from 17.6% at James C. Enochs High to 81.3% at Robert Elliott Alternative Education Center. Addressing this issue may be crucial for improving overall academic performance. Additionally, the student-teacher ratio, which varies from 28.3:1 at Enochs High to 13.3:1 at Robert Elliott, may be an important factor in the schools' ability to support student learning and achievement.
