Placer Hills Union Elementary


The Placer Hills Union Elementary district in California is home to two schools - Weimar Hills, a middle school serving grades 4-8, and Sierra Hills Elementary, an elementary school serving grades K-3. Both schools demonstrate strong academic performance, with students exceeding state averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency.

While the student populations at both schools are predominantly white, there is some racial diversity, with Hispanic students making up nearly 10% of the student body. Weimar Hills has particularly impressive 4th-grade test scores, with 47.3% and 49.32% proficiency in ELA and Math, respectively, compared to state averages of 43.73% and 40.79%. However, Weimar Hills' statewide ranking has declined in recent years, suggesting a relative decline in performance compared to other middle schools in the state.

Both schools face challenges, including high chronic absenteeism rates well above the state average. Additionally, the elementary school, Sierra Hills Elementary, appears to be outperforming the middle school, Weimar Hills, in certain metrics, such as 3rd-grade ELA and Math proficiency. Overall, the Placer Hills Union Elementary district demonstrates a level of consistency in performance, but the district may benefit from addressing the high chronic absenteeism rates and the relative decline in Weimar Hills' performance.
