Academically, Canyon Ridge High consistently ranks in the bottom 10-15% of California high schools, with a 1-star rating. Its four-year graduation rates, ranging from 64.4% to 78.1%, are significantly lower than the nearby Sultana High (86.1%) and Oak Hills High (98.4%). The school also has extremely high dropout rates, ranging from 11.6% to 19.4%, much higher than the nearby schools, which range from 1.4% to 13.1%. Additionally, Canyon Ridge High has alarmingly high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 54.2% to 99.7%, compared to the nearby schools, which range from 25.0% to 78.6%.

The school's performance data also indicates that certain racial subgroups, such as Hispanic and African American students, are underperforming compared to their White and Asian peers. This, combined with the school's high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds (86.38% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch), suggests that targeted interventions and support may be necessary to improve student outcomes at Canyon Ridge High.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
