Pacific High

Summary:

Pacific High is a public high school located in San Bernardino, California, serving grades 9-12 with a total enrollment of 1,166 students. The school is part of the San Bernardino City Unified school district, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Pacific High stands out from nearby schools like Arroyo Valley High and San Gorgonio High in several key ways. It has a significantly higher Hispanic student population (80.96%) and lower percentages of White (3.95%) and Asian (1.72%) students. Academically, Pacific High's test scores are lower than state averages, with only 32.43% of 11th-graders proficient in English and 10% proficient in math. The school's four-year graduation rate, while generally higher than the state average, is lower than some nearby schools. Additionally, Pacific High has a very high chronic absenteeism rate of 40.3%, which is significantly higher than the surrounding schools.

Despite these challenges, Pacific High has some bright spots. Its English Language Learner students have performed relatively well, ranking 233 out of 1,315 California high schools. However, the school's White and African American students have struggled, ranking 1,223 out of 1,424 and 497 out of 713 California high schools, respectively. Overall, Pacific High faces significant obstacles, including lower academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students. Addressing these issues will be crucial for improving student outcomes and better serving the community.

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.
