Calaveras River Academy

Summary:

Calaveras River Academy is a small public high school serving grades 6-12 in the rural town of San Andreas, California. With just 20 students, the school has struggled with extremely low academic performance, high poverty levels, and chronic absenteeism issues that far exceed state and county averages.

Calaveras River Academy has consistently ranked in the bottom 5-10% of California high schools over the past decade, with 0% of students proficient in both English Language Arts and Mathematics. The school's 4-year graduation rate was only 54.5% in 2016-2017, well below the state average. Additionally, the school has grappled with a staggering 97.1% chronic absenteeism rate in the current school year, over 3 times the state average. These challenges are compounded by the fact that 80% of Calaveras River Academy's students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating high levels of poverty.

In comparison, nearby schools like Bret Harte Union High and Oakendell Community perform significantly better on key metrics such as test scores, graduation rates, and chronic absenteeism. The challenges faced by Calaveras River Academy are likely exacerbated by its small size and rural location, which can make it difficult to attract and retain teachers, offer a diverse curriculum, and provide necessary support services. Addressing these issues will require significant investments and support from the Calaveras County Office of Education district and the state of California.

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.
