San Luis Obispo County Community

Summary:

San Luis Obispo County Community is a small public high school serving grades 6-12 in the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education district, with a student population of just 68 as of 2022-2023. The school's student body is predominantly Hispanic (61.76%) and low-income, with 97.06% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

Despite its small size, San Luis Obispo County Community stands out for all the wrong reasons. The school consistently ranks among the lowest-performing high schools in California, with a 0% proficiency rate in English, Math, and Science. Its dropout rate has ranged from 7.4% to 35.7% in recent years, and the four-year graduation rate has been as low as 40.7%. Chronic absenteeism is also a major issue, with rates ranging from 71.3% to 90.6% - significantly higher than the county and state averages.

In comparison to nearby high-performing schools like Templeton High, Atascadero High, and Morro Bay High, San Luis Obispo County Community stands out as an outlier, struggling to support its predominantly disadvantaged student population. The school's unique challenges, such as its small size and specialized role within the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education district, may be contributing factors to its poor outcomes.

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.
