High Schools in Sugar-Salem Joint District


The Sugar-Salem Joint District is home to two high schools: Sugar-Salem High School and Valley View Alternative High School. While Sugar-Salem High School serves a larger student population, Valley View Alternative High School caters to a more diverse group of students with specialized educational needs.

Sugar-Salem High School has seen a concerning decline in its academic performance, dropping from a 4-star rating to a 1-star rating in the last two years. Despite this, the school maintains a relatively high 4-year graduation rate of 90.9%. In contrast, Valley View Alternative High School has a higher 4-year graduation rate of 82.4%, which is notable given the school's alternative nature. However, Valley View Alternative High School also has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate of 30.0%.

The data also reveals disparities in funding and resources between the two high schools. Sugar-Salem High School spends $7,612 per student, while Valley View Alternative High School spends $4,558 per student. This difference in resource allocation raises questions about equity within the Sugar-Salem Joint District.
