California School Finder

Use California School Finder to access data on California’s public schools. The information is provided by the California Department of Education (cde.ca.gov/). You can compare schools side-by-side based on the following information:

  • School Address (MS Virtual Earth Photo of School )
  • District Dollars per Student
  • Total Number of Teachers & Students
  • Avg. Students per Teacher & Counselor
  • Graduation & Dropout Rate
  • CAHSEE Results (no STAR9 , etc)
  • Student Demographics by Ethnicity
  • Courses Offered, AP Classes, Special Education

I sent an email requesting the inclusion of the following info

  • Direct link to school's website
  • Athletics, Arts, or Music Program Info
  • Student Club & Activities Info
  • Transportion
  • Parochial schools (greatschools.net/ includes this info)
  • Higher Education (College or University)

For more info, read A new tool for comparing schools.
