Sacramento Valley Charter students significantly outperform the state and district averages on standardized tests across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, 67.24% of Sacramento Valley Charter students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to the state average of 46.66%. In math, 65.24% of Sacramento Valley Charter students were proficient or better, compared to 34.62% statewide.

The nearby public schools in the Sacramento City Unified and Washington Unified districts generally have much lower academic performance, higher chronic absenteeism rates, and lower rankings compared to Sacramento Valley Charter.

While Sacramento Valley Charter serves a predominantly Asian student population, the school's rankings for its small subgroups of other races (White, African American, Hispanic, etc.) are not as strong, indicating potential areas for improvement in addressing the needs of these student populations and promoting greater diversity and equity.

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.
