La Vista High (Continuation)

Summary:

La Vista High (Continuation) is a public high school serving grades 9-12 in Fullerton, California, with a student population of 396 and a predominantly Hispanic student body. However, the school has consistently struggled with low academic performance, high dropout rates, and chronic absenteeism, significantly underperforming compared to nearby traditional high schools like Sunny Hills High, Fullerton Union High, and Troy High.

La Vista High (Continuation) has consistently ranked in the bottom 15% of California high schools, with a 1-star rating in recent years. The school's graduation rates have ranged from 47% to 73.2%, and its dropout rates have been high, ranging from 18.6% to 26.3%. Additionally, the school has experienced extremely high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 63.2% to 76.6%, significantly higher than the Fullerton Joint Union High School District and state averages. The school's performance on standardized tests, such as the Smarter Balanced Assessments and the California Science Test (CAST), is also significantly lower than the district and state averages.

The data suggests that the continuation school model may not be effectively meeting the needs of the students at La Vista High (Continuation), which serves a population with significant socioeconomic challenges, as indicated by the high percentage of free and reduced-price lunch recipients (76.26%). Additionally, the school's predominantly Hispanic student population (88.64%) and the relatively low performance of Hispanic and White student subgroups suggest that there may be racial/ethnic disparities in educational outcomes that need to be addressed.

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.
