Yolo High

Summary:

Yolo High is a public high school located in West Sacramento, California, serving grades 9-12 with a total enrollment of 96 students. The school is part of the Washington Unified School District, which is ranked 1090 out of 1560 districts in California and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Yolo High faces significant challenges compared to nearby schools. The school has a much higher percentage of Hispanic students (63.54%) and a very high percentage of students (90.62%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage. Academically, Yolo High's performance is significantly lower than the nearby schools, with only 4.35% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and 0% proficient or better in Mathematics, compared to the nearby schools that ranged from 35.38% to 73.81% proficient or better in ELA and 4.33% to 26.53% in Mathematics. Yolo High also has a relatively low four-year graduation rate of 73.8% and an extremely high chronic absenteeism rate of 84.8%, much higher than the nearby schools.

The performance of Yolo High has been declining over the years, with its statewide ranking dropping from 1228 out of 1290 in 2020-2021 to 2225 out of 2335 in 2022-2023, and its SchoolDigger star rating remaining at 0 or 1 out of 5 stars. This suggests that Yolo High may be facing unique challenges that the other schools in the area, such as Sacramento Charter High, Natomas High, and River City High, are not experiencing. Addressing the underlying factors that contribute to these challenges, such as the high percentage of economically disadvantaged students and the high chronic absenteeism rate, may be crucial for improving Yolo High's overall performance and outcomes for its 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.
