Norwalk-La Mirada Unified


The Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District in California serves 25 schools, including 16 elementary schools, 5 middle schools, and 4 high schools. The district's schools demonstrate a range of academic performance, with standout institutions like La Mirada High School and Arlie F. Hutchinson Middle School earning high rankings and strong test scores, while other schools struggle with lower graduation rates and higher chronic absenteeism.

The data reveals significant performance gaps between the highest and lowest-performing schools in the district, particularly in academic achievement. There appears to be a correlation between the socioeconomic status of students, as measured by free/reduced-price lunch eligibility, and academic outcomes. Schools with higher percentages of low-income students, such as Arturo Sanchez Elementary, tend to have lower test scores and graduation rates. The variation in student-teacher ratios across the district may also contribute to these disparities, with smaller class sizes at higher-performing schools like Gardenhill Elementary.

The district's continuation school, El Camino High, stands out with its low academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and low graduation rates, highlighting the unique challenges faced by students in alternative educational settings. Addressing these challenges and ensuring equitable access to high-quality education for all students in the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District will be crucial for improving overall district outcomes.
