Abraham Lincoln High

Summary:

Abraham Lincoln High is a public high school located in San Jose, California, serving 1,693 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the San Jose Unified School District, which is ranked 711 out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Abraham Lincoln High maintains a relatively high four-year graduation rate, ranging from 91.3% to 95.9% in recent years, it has a significantly higher Hispanic student population (76.2%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 19.07% to 85.22% Hispanic students. The school's test scores in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science are generally lower than the district and state averages, and it has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 14.4% in 2020-2021 to 33.5% in 2022-2023. In contrast, Willow Glen High consistently outperforms Abraham Lincoln High in areas such as graduation rates, test scores, and chronic absenteeism, while San Jose High struggles with even lower test scores and higher dropout rates.

The school's high percentage of students (53.57%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a higher proportion of students from low-income families, may contribute to the school's challenges in academic performance and attendance. Additionally, the presence of Middle College High, a small public high school located just 0.89 miles from Abraham Lincoln High, provides an interesting contrast, as it consistently outperforms Abraham Lincoln High in areas such as graduation rates, dropout rates, and chronic absenteeism, despite serving a smaller student population.

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.
