Yuba City High

Summary:

Yuba City High is a public high school serving 1,822 students in grades 9-12 in Yuba City, California, which is part of the Yuba City Unified school district.

Yuba City High has a diverse student population, with a significant Hispanic/Latino representation (around 55%) and a sizable Asian student population (around 12%). Academically, the school's performance is generally on par with or slightly above the district and state averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics. The school has maintained a relatively stable four-year graduation rate, ranging from 85.4% to 87.9% in recent years, which is comparable to nearby schools like River Valley High. However, Yuba City High has seen an increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 14.7% in 2018-2019 to 19.9% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the nearby River Valley High (21.7%) but lower than the continuation schools like Thomas E. Mathews Community (69.6%) and Feather River Academy (80.0%).

Yuba City High's performance varies across different student subgroups, with Asian students and Hispanic/Latino students generally performing better than their White and multi-racial peers. Compared to nearby schools, Yuba City High generally performs better than the continuation schools but lags behind the higher-performing charter school, Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts, which consistently ranks among the top 400 high schools in California. Yuba City High's relatively high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds (64.49% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch) likely contributes to the school's academic performance and other metrics.

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.
