Washington High

Summary:

Washington High is a public high school located in Fremont, California, serving grades 9-12 with a total enrollment of 1,931 students. The school is part of the Fremont Unified School District, which is ranked 170 out of 1,560 districts in California and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Washington High has a diverse student population, with a significant Asian student population (around 50%) and a relatively even distribution of other racial groups. The school consistently ranks in the top 10-15% of California high schools, with a statewide ranking between 148-203 out of over 2,000 high schools. Washington High maintains a high four-year graduation rate, ranging from 91.4% to 93.9% over the past few years, which is higher than the state and district averages. However, the school's chronic absenteeism rate of 16.2% is higher compared to some of the top-performing schools in the area, such as Irvington High and American High.

While Washington High's overall performance is strong, the data suggests that students from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as those with low socioeconomic status or disabilities, may face greater challenges. The school's rankings for these subgroups are lower compared to its overall performance, indicating a need to focus on supporting these students. Additionally, the school may benefit from addressing the root causes of chronic absenteeism to improve overall student engagement and academic outcomes.

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.
