Racine Unified School District


The Racine Unified School District in Wisconsin encompasses 26 schools, including 19 elementary schools, 1 middle school, 5 high schools, and 1 alternative school, serving students from diverse backgrounds. While the district faces challenges in academic performance, a few standout schools, such as Walden III High School and Jefferson Lighthouse Elementary, are able to achieve higher outcomes, suggesting that with the right strategies and resources, schools can overcome obstacles and excel.

The data reveals significant performance gaps between the highest and lowest performing schools, both within the district and compared to state averages. There appears to be a correlation between the percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch and academic performance, with schools serving more economically disadvantaged students tending to have lower proficiency rates. Chronic absenteeism is also a concern, with rates ranging from 15.3% to 60.8%, indicating the need for targeted interventions to address this issue.

Despite the overall challenges, a few schools in the district, such as Walden III High School, Jefferson Lighthouse Elementary, and RUSD Montessori, are able to defy the trends and achieve higher academic outcomes, suggesting that with the right strategies and resources, schools in the Racine Unified School District can improve educational opportunities for all students.
