San Jacinto High

Summary:

San Jacinto High is a public high school serving 2,617 students in grades 9-12 in San Jacinto, California, which is part of the San Jacinto Unified School District. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student population, with academic performance generally below state and district averages. Compared to nearby high-performing schools like Nuview Bridge Early College High and Western Center Academy, San Jacinto High faces challenges in areas such as academic achievement, graduation rates, and chronic absenteeism.

San Jacinto High's student population is 78.07% Hispanic, with relatively low percentages of White (7.91%) and Asian (1.41%) students compared to the state average. Academically, the school underperforms, with only 40.85% of 11th-grade students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, and just 8.63% proficient in mathematics, significantly lower than the state averages. The school's four-year graduation rate has remained relatively high, ranging from 92.2% to 94.0% in recent years, but its dropout rate has been increasing, from 1.3% in 2018-2019 to 4.2% in 2022-2023, higher than nearby high-performing schools.

A concerning trend at San Jacinto High is the significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 15.9% in 2017-2018 to 32.2% in 2022-2023, higher than the state average and most nearby schools. Additionally, the school serves a predominantly disadvantaged student population, with 85.36% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch in the 2022-2023 school year. These challenges suggest the need for targeted interventions and support to address the achievement gap, improve student engagement, and ultimately, enhance the overall academic performance of San Jacinto High.

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.
