Alta Vista Community Charter stands out for its diverse student population, with a higher percentage of white and multiracial students compared to nearby schools. Academically, the school outperforms the district and the state in several areas, including English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. However, the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 6.9% in 2017-2018 to 31.0% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the range of 20.1% to 29.8% at nearby schools. Despite this challenge, Alta Vista Community Charter has maintained a consistent 3-star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating stable academic performance.

When comparing Alta Vista Community Charter to other schools in the area, it lags behind some of the higher-performing charter and public schools, such as Harvest Ridge Cooperative Charter, Newcastle Charter, and Ophir STEAM Academy, which have higher academic proficiency rates and lower chronic absenteeism. Addressing the high chronic absenteeism rate at Alta Vista Community Charter could be a focus for the school's administration and the Auburn Union Elementary School District.

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.
