Placer Union High


The Placer Union High School District consists of 6 high schools serving students in the Placer County region. The data reveals a stark contrast between the top-performing schools, such as Del Oro High and Colfax High, and the lower-performing schools, like Confluence Continuation High.

Del Oro High stands out as the highest-ranked school in the district, performing exceptionally well on academic assessments and boasting a 98.7% four-year graduation rate. Colfax High also performs well, maintaining a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. In contrast, Confluence Continuation High struggles, with a concerning 63% four-year graduation rate and a 24.7% dropout rate, highlighting the unique challenges faced by alternative and continuation schools.

The data suggests that smaller schools, like Foresthill High, may have an advantage in terms of student-teacher ratios, but this does not necessarily translate to higher academic performance. Additionally, schools with higher percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, such as Confluence Continuation High and Foresthill High, tend to have lower academic performance and higher rates of chronic absenteeism, indicating potential equity concerns that warrant further investigation.
