Washington Unified


The Washington Unified School District in California serves a diverse population of students across 12 schools, including 8 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 3 high schools. The data reveals significant performance gaps between the highest and lowest-performing schools, with Washington Middle College High standing out as the top-performing high school and Riverbank Elementary and Westfield Village Elementary struggling the most academically.

While River City High has the highest student enrollment and strong academic performance, with 60.38% of 11th graders proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, Bridgeway Island Elementary stands out as the top-performing elementary school, with proficiency rates exceeding the district and state averages across multiple grade levels and subject areas. However, chronic absenteeism rates are a concern at several schools, including River City High, Southport Elementary, Riverbank Elementary, Westfield Village Elementary, and Yolo High.

The data suggests that the Washington Unified School District should focus on addressing the significant performance gaps between schools, particularly by learning from the practices and approaches used at the top-performing schools like Washington Middle College High. Additionally, the district should prioritize addressing the high chronic absenteeism rates to improve overall academic outcomes for all students.
