Chaparral High

Summary:

Chaparral High is a public high school located in Phelan, California, serving grades 9-12 with a relatively small student population of 193. The school is part of the Snowline Joint Unified School District, which is ranked 1081 out of 1560 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Chaparral High faces significant challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom 20% of California high schools with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school has a significantly higher Hispanic student population (63.73%) compared to the state average, and its academic performance is well below state and district averages across all subjects and grade levels. Chaparral High's four-year graduation rate has fluctuated, ranging from a low of 67.8% to a high of 90.0%, but it is still below the state average. The school also experiences high dropout rates, ranging from 5.7% to 25.2%, and alarmingly high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 49.2% to 79.5%, which are much higher than state and district averages.

In comparison, the nearby Serrano High is ranked in the top 40% of California high schools and has much higher test scores, graduation rates, and lower dropout and chronic absenteeism rates. Chaparral High's performance is particularly low for its White and Hispanic student subgroups, ranking in the bottom 10-20% of California high schools for these groups. However, its English Language Learner and Disabled student subgroups perform relatively better, ranking in the top 50% of California high schools. This concerning trend suggests the need for significant interventions and support to improve outcomes for Chaparral High students.

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.
