The 90706 zip code area is home to 11 schools, including 6 elementary schools, 2 high schools, and 3 alternative schools, all part of the Bellflower Unified School District. While the district is ranked 819 out of 1,560 in California and has an overall rating of 2 out of 5 stars, a few standout schools in the area demonstrate strong academic performance and student outcomes.

The Downey Unified Virtual Academy at Lynn L. Pace Educational Center and Las Flores Home Education Independent Study Academy, both alternative schools, stand out with exceptional academic results, high graduation rates, and low dropout rates. In contrast, the traditional high school, Somerset High, has a lower 4-year graduation rate of 66.7% and a higher dropout rate of 7.1%. Among the elementary schools, Ernie Pyle Elementary demonstrates relatively high test scores, with 50% or more of students proficient or better in English Language Arts across multiple grade levels.

The data also reveals significant disparities in academic achievement, student engagement, and resource allocation across the schools in the 90706 zip code area. High rates of free/reduced lunch recipients and chronic absenteeism suggest the district faces challenges in serving a socioeconomically disadvantaged student population. The wide range of student-teacher ratios, from 5.1 at Bellflower Alternative Education Center to 25.6 at Albert Baxter Elementary and Frank E. Woodruff Elementary, may be a contributing factor to the varying academic outcomes. Targeted interventions and support are needed to address these disparities and ensure all students in the 90706 zip code area have access to a high-quality education.
