Chapter A:
STUDENT/COMMUNITY PROFILE

GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE SCHOOL
THE COMMUNITY
Valley High School opened in 1959 as the second comprehensive high school in the school district. We are bordered by an elementary school, an intermediate school, School District Pupil Support Services, housing developments, commercial properties, and apartments in every direction. There are also two comprehensive Santa Ana Unified School District fundamental high schools within a two-mile radius of our campus.
Valley High School is now one of six comprehensive high schools in the Santa Ana Unified School District. Valley High School is located in Santa Ana, California, approximately 40 miles south of Los Angeles in Southern California’s Orange County. The city of Santa Ana has a total population of 324,528 (2010 Census), with Latinos representing the largest ethnic population at 78.2%, 9.2% White, 10.4% Asian, 1.0% African American, 1.3% other. However, many city leaders believe that the census is inaccurate due to the high water consumption. City leaders predict the actual population is close to 500,000, as opposed to 350,000. This is due to a high number of undocumented individuals who probably did not register during the census. The city is bordered by Orange, Tustin, Irvine, Costa Mesa, Fountain Valley, Westminster, and Garden Grove. There are seven community colleges within the area, two California State University Campuses (Long Beach and Fullerton) and the University of California, Irvine. In addition, there are several private universities and colleges within a short commute such as Vanguard, Concordia, Phoenix, Corinthian, Chapman, Art Institute of California-Orange County, SOKA, National, USC, and Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM).
The City of Santa Ana has a long and proud history of working with community leaders from neighborhoods, community-based organizations, and service clubs to improve the quality of life for residents. The city is home to the Bowers Museum, Discovery Science Center, the Santora Building of the Arts and the Santa Ana Zoo. The Orange County Performing Arts Center and the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall are also nearby.
SANTA ANA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) is the largest district in Orange County and the seventh largest in the state, with 61 schools and over 56,000 students. Approximately 87% of students within the district are English Learners and 87% of SAUSD students participate in the free or reduced-price meal program.
The Santa Ana Unified School District is a K-12 district that employs over 4,654 making it the largest district within Orange County, with full and part time employees, serving 6 comprehensive high schools, 3 alternative high schools, a middle college high school, 36 elementary schools, 9 intermediate schools and 5 charter schools. Serving a large urban community presents many challenges for schools. The Santa Ana Unified School District has a clear focus on learning to address identified needs. The District’s focus links common core implementation to the district’s mission and vision, the 7 Building Block for Success, mission and vision statements and Theory of Action.

District Theory of Action to address these challenges: by implementing high quality, personalized learning and instruction based on common core standards, which focus on inquiry, and higher level thinking, we will accelerate student achievement.


VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL
Valley High School is a large comprehensive school that in 2011-2012, served 2,332 ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade students. Approximately 48% were designated as English Language Learners and 43% were Redesignated English Fluent Proficient (RFEP). Spanish is the predominant primary language of English Learners at Valley, but in 2011-2012 there were 9 different home languages listed for English Learners. The school is located in a community which consists of small homes and apartments and is composed largely of Latino families, many of whom are first or second generation immigrants from Mexico and Central America. The student population of Valley is 97% Latino, with a small percentage of White, African-Americans, and Asians. In the 2012-2013 school year, 86% of Valley students qualified for free or reduced priced meals, an increase of 4%. We attribute this increase to parent access to the online application through Valley’s parent center.
During the 2006-07 school year, Valley High School went through modernization and the offices and classrooms were updated to include air conditioning, new ceilings, paint and technology. Also included was a beautifully refurbished cafeteria nicknamed Club 59, in honor of the year Valley was established. A magnificent aquatic center and a higher education/counseling center were also built. The higher education center houses five counselors and a higher education coordinator, as well as representatives from various local agencies. Valley High School offers a variety of curricular programs to meet the needs of students, including AVID and Adelante. All departments have adapted their curricula to reflect the California Standards. Advanced Placement courses are offered in English, Spanish, United States History, European History, United States Government, Calculus, Environmental, and Chemistry.
The High School Inc.
High School Inc. is a unique partnership between the Santa Ana Unified School District and the Santa Ana Chamber of Commerce, and supported by the HIS Academies Foundation. The goal of The High School Inc. Academies at Valley High School, and the focus of our School Improvement Grant, is to provide all students with a strong foundation for success in college and
careers. Six academies, representing high need industry sectors, housed in state-of the industry facilities and supported by many business partners, will prepare Valley High School students for careers and a full range of postsecondary options. There are approximately 200 committed business partners that work in the six academies at Valley High School. The six academies serve approximately 1,000 students in:


  1. Culinary Arts and Hospitality

  2. Health Care

  3. Automotive, Transportation and Logistics

  4. New Media

  5. Global Business

  6. Engineering, Manufacturing and Construction

Valley High School’s, 2013 API has grown 92 points over the last three years. On February 4, 2013, the ILT approved an API target of 714 for the current school year. The target was announced to the teaching staff on 3/6/13.

Valley High School utilizes performance data collected and relevant to all subgroups on CAHSEE, CST, Benchmarks, and CELDT testing to drive instructional practice and improve student learning. Scheduled data chats among and between content areas, assist teachers in focused instructional practice. This practice has resulted in steady API growth over the last three years. We have allocated additional resources to monitor the progress of students in the special education subgroup.

Data for API subgroups was attained from Document Tracking Services.

Although Valley’s statewide API rank remains a 1, the progress being made on similar schools rank has been attributed to our use of data and best practices. Valley High School is optimistic that our statewide rank will improve in 2013.

California Standards Test (CSTs) Overall Performance
Student performance continues to improve as measured by the CST.
As a result of data analysis and focused instructional practice, increasing numbers of students are reaching proficiency and advanced levels of achievement. Concurrently, fewer numbers of students are scoring at far below basic and below basic. We believe that the implementation of regular data analysis and teacher collaboration is primarily responsible for this statistical improvement.
There was a decrease in the percentage of students scoring Far Below Basic in 7 core subject areas: Grade 10/11 ELA, Geometry, Earth Science, Physics, World History, United States History, and Algebra II. In 2012, our site's API increased 22 points, largely due to moving students up a proficiency band from Far Below Basic (FBB) to Below Basic (BB): Students in grade 11 showed the most movement from FBB to BB.

English Language Arts
In 2012, the VHS staff made a concerted effort to identify FBB students in core classes for targeted tutorials and intervention programs. An analysis of 2010-2012 CST performance band comparison data indicates that this program was successful. In 2012, there were fewer FBB students in grades 10 and 11 ELA. There was an increase in the percent of proficient and advanced in grade 11.

Math


VHS is focused on providing the most rigorous math sequencing available and supporting our students as they stretch their math skills. The results of this challenge and support are significant improvement in Algebra II results and steady growth in EOC proficiency rates. It is expected the over the next three years greater numbers of students will complete higher levels of math classes including increased success in AP Calculus. Algebra II made significant gains. Fewer students scored a far below basic from 38% in 2009 to 13% in 2012.

Science


The VHS Science department is seeing steady growth in its CST data. Life Science Proficiency has increased from 17 to 28% over the last three years. Biology Proficiency and Advanced has increased steadily in all grade levels, with corresponding decreases in FBB and BB. Chemistry results have not increased as dramatically as some other Science courses. Though percentages of Proficient and Advanced have increased, the percentages of Far Below Basic have also increased, indicating a need to address the remediation of our low performing students and provide targeted tutoring to help ensure their success. Earth Science EOC exams have improved dramatically, with a 22% gain in proficiency and advanced, while decreasing FBB by 12 %. Physics scores are also seeing some growth with most advances being made in improving the scores of those students in FBB and BB, while not seeing significant growth in the proficient and advanced scores
