Napa High

Summary:

Napa High is a public high school located in Napa, California, serving grades 9-12 with a total enrollment of 1,762 students. The school faces several challenges, including lower academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a large population of socioeconomically disadvantaged students.

Napa High has a significantly higher Hispanic student population (75.14%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 37.4% to 62.64% Hispanic students. This is an important factor to consider when analyzing the school's performance, as the academic performance of Hispanic students is lower compared to their White and Multi-racial peers. For example, in 2022-2023, the proficiency rate in English Language Arts/Literacy for Hispanic students was 1,154 out of 2,132 California high schools, while for White students, it was 437 out of 1,424 California high schools. Additionally, Napa High's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is generally lower than the state and district averages, with only 51.36% of 11th-grade students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy and 18.16% proficient or better in Mathematics.

While Napa High's four-year graduation rate of 94.1% in 2022-2023 is comparable to the nearby schools, its dropout rate of 2.6% is higher than the surrounding schools, which range from 1.2% to 1.4%. The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 26.9% in 2022-2023, significantly higher than the surrounding schools, which range from 20.7% to 27.9%. Furthermore, Napa High has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (72.64%), which is higher than the surrounding schools, such as Vintage High (69.38%) and American Canyon High (49.88%). These factors may be contributing to the school's lower academic performance and declining performance over time, as evidenced by its drop from a 4-star to a 3-star rating from Napa Valley Unified 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.
