Title I

We are happy to participate in the federal Title I program, which provides financial assistance to local educational agencies and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families. These funds help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards.

Dedicated to Success

Despite the fact that a majority of our students are from low-income families, 80% of our students go on to attend the highest rated public high schools (API statewide rankings of six or more), including School Of The Arts (SOTA) and Lowell, as well as top private and parochial schools.

TECA High Scores

Our preparation for success is reflected in our strong API scores, with a three-year average API of 794. Our 2013 Academic Performance Index (API) score is higher than the average score of all Title I SFUSD elementary and middle schools, higher than the majority of SFUSD Title I public schools, higher than the two kindergarten through eighth-grade schools that serve a similar population, and higher than 70% of the public schools in the neighborhoods in which most of our students reside.
