In contrast, San Andreas Continuation High faces significant challenges, with much higher rates of chronic absenteeism (94.5% vs. 24.8%) and dropout (23.9% vs. 5.3%) compared to Hollister High. Additionally, San Andreas Continuation High has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a higher proportion of economically disadvantaged students.
