Monterey High (Continuation)

Summary:

Monterey High (Continuation) is a small public high school in Burbank, California, serving grades 9-12 and part of the Burbank Unified School District. The school faces significant challenges, with a student population that is predominantly Hispanic, consistently low statewide rankings, and academic performance well below the district and state averages.

Monterey High (Continuation) has a relatively small student population of 92 students and has consistently ranked in the bottom 30% of California high schools over the past several years, significantly lower than the nearby Burbank High and Burroughs High, which rank in the top 25% and top 22% of California high schools, respectively. The school's four-year graduation rate has improved in recent years, but at 87.2%, it is still lower than the nearby high-performing schools. Monterey High (Continuation) also struggles with a high dropout rate and very high chronic absenteeism, ranging from 62.6% to 80.4% over the past few years.

Academically, Monterey High (Continuation) students perform significantly lower on standardized tests compared to the Burbank Unified School District and the state of California. In 2022-2023, only 32% of Monterey High (Continuation) students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, and just 4.26% were proficient or better in Mathematics. These challenges are common among continuation schools, and the school's high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds may be a contributing factor. Continued efforts to address the underlying issues and provide targeted support could be crucial in helping Monterey High (Continuation) improve its outcomes and provide a more equitable educational experience for its students.

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.
