Alta Vista Innovation High

Summary:

Alta Vista Innovation High is a public charter high school serving grades 9-12 in Hesperia, California, with a student population of 2,023. The school is part of the Hesperia Unified district, which is ranked 1312 out of 1560 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Compared to nearby schools, Alta Vista Innovation High stands out as an outlier in several key areas. The school has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (71.82%) and a very high percentage of economically disadvantaged students (87.15%), which may contribute to its poor academic performance. Alta Vista Innovation High consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of California high schools, with low graduation rates (17.8% to 19.1%) and high dropout rates (19.8%) that are much worse than the nearby Hesperia High, Mojave High, and other local schools.

The data also reveals that Alta Vista Innovation High students perform significantly below the state average in all tested subjects, including English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. Additionally, the school has an extremely high chronic absenteeism rate of 60.4%, which is much higher than the nearby schools. These concerning trends suggest that Alta Vista Innovation High is struggling to provide a quality education and support for its diverse student population, and significant interventions may be needed to improve student outcomes and ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed.

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.
