McClellan High (Continuation)

Summary:

McClellan High (Continuation) is a small public high school serving grades 9-12 in Antelope, California, part of the Center Joint Unified School District. Despite its diverse student population, the school faces significant challenges, including low academic performance, high rates of socioeconomic disadvantage, and poor student outcomes.

McClellan High (Continuation) consistently ranks in the bottom 10-15% of California high schools, with a statewide ranking between 1062-2109 out of around 2,000-2,300 high schools. The school's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is extremely low, with only 13% of students proficient in English Language Arts and 0% proficient in Mathematics and Science. This is in stark contrast to nearby high schools like Center High, Rio Linda High, and Woodcreek High, which have significantly higher academic performance.

The school's challenges are compounded by its high rates of socioeconomic disadvantage, with 68-78% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. Additionally, McClellan High (Continuation) has struggled with low graduation rates, ranging from 42-77%, and alarmingly high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 67-79%. These issues are likely contributing to the school's poor student outcomes and warrant further investigation and targeted interventions to address the root causes and improve the educational experience for the diverse student population.

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.
