Washington Middle College High

Summary:

Washington Middle College High is a public charter high school located in West Sacramento, California, serving grades 9-12 with a student population of 151. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student body, with smaller percentages of White, Asian, and other racial groups.

Washington Middle College High consistently outperforms the Washington Unified School District and the state of California in English Language Arts (ELA), with 73.81% of students proficient or better, compared to 40.78% for the district and 46.66% for the state. However, the school's performance in Mathematics is relatively lower, with only 16.67% of students proficient or better, compared to 25.34% for the district and 34.62% for the state. The school's performance in Science is also above the district and state averages, with 35.71% of students proficient or better. Notably, Washington Middle College High has an exceptional four-year graduation rate of 100% and a very low dropout rate of 0%, significantly outperforming nearby schools like Yolo High, which has a four-year graduation rate of 73.8% and a dropout rate of 26.2%.

While Washington Middle College High's academic performance is impressive, the school has experienced fluctuations in chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 2.3% in 2020-2021 to 35.4% in 2021-2022, with the most recent rate in 2022-2023 at 11.5%. This suggests that the school may have faced unique challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, which impacted student attendance. Additionally, the school serves a relatively high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 80.79% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch in the 2022-2023 school year, making its academic achievements even more noteworthy. However, the school could benefit from addressing its relatively lower performance in Mathematics and stabilizing its chronic absenteeism rates to further enhance the educational experience 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.
