Valley High (Continuation)

Summary:

Valley High (Continuation) is a small public high school in Dublin, California, serving grades 9-12 and part of the highly-ranked Dublin Unified School District. However, this continuation school stands out from its neighbors like Dublin High and Dougherty Valley High with its significantly lower academic performance, high dropout rates, and high chronic absenteeism.

Valley High (Continuation) consistently ranks in the bottom half of California high schools, with only 36.84% of 11th-grade students proficient in English and 0% proficient in math, compared to the district and state averages. The school also struggles with high dropout rates ranging from 5.4% to 33.3% and chronic absenteeism as high as 72.6%. This is in stark contrast to the high-performing nearby schools, which have much stronger academic metrics and lower rates of absenteeism and dropouts.

The diverse student population at Valley High (Continuation), which is 39.58% White, 10.42% African American, 27.08% Hispanic, and 8.33% Asian, also has a higher percentage of students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds compared to other schools in the area. This suggests that the unique challenges faced by the students at Valley High (Continuation) may be contributing to the school's underperformance, and further investigation into the specific needs of this population could be crucial in developing strategies to improve outcomes.

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.
