Salinas Community

Summary:

Salinas Community is a small public high school serving grades 7-12 in Salinas, California, with a predominantly Hispanic student population of 107 students. However, this school stands out for its consistently poor academic performance, low graduation rates, high dropout rates, and chronic absenteeism issues compared to other schools in the Salinas Union High district and the state of California.

Salinas Community has received a 1-star rating out of 5 for the past several years, indicating very low academic achievement. Its four-year graduation rates have ranged from a dismal 23.1% to 51.2% over the past 5 years, much lower than the state and district averages. Correspondingly, the school has struggled with high dropout rates, ranging from 7.0% to 65.6% during the same period. Chronic absenteeism is also a major concern, with 51.9% to 65.8% of students missing significant school time. On standardized tests, only 14.29% of 11th graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts, 2.56% in Mathematics, and 0% in Science.

Compared to nearby Salinas High, Rancho San Juan High, and Everett Alvarez High, Salinas Community performs significantly worse across academic metrics. The school's lack of diversity, with 96.26% Hispanic students, is also notable. While the school's English Language Learner students perform relatively better, the overall challenges at Salinas Community suggest the need for targeted interventions to support this small, disadvantaged student population.

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.
