Skip to comments.A Comparison of Compton and Cupertino High Schools
Posted on 12/11/2019 5:57:09 AM PST by karpov
There is an FR thread California universities using SAT for admissions are violating civil rights, lawsuit claims. The Compton school district is one of those suing. SAT and ACT scores do vary a lot around the state, but so do other objective academic measures. Unless the University of California moves to open admissions and self-destructs, there is no way for the entering class to match California's racial democragraphics. Here is a comparison of the high schools of Compton and Cupertino (home of Apple) with data from College Simply.
Compton is 0% White, 0% Asian, 17% Black, and 82% Hispanic. 6 to 9% of girls and less than 5% of boys are proficient in math according to the state test. The average SAT score is 904, even though only 32% of students take the SAT or ACT. 10% of students take Advanced Placement exams, with a 43% pass rate. The AP math and science enrollment rates are each 1%. The chronic absenteeism rate is 49%.
Cupertino is 18% White, 65% Asian, 2% Black, and 10% Hispanic. 80 to 84% of girls and boys are proficient in math according to the state test. The average SAT score is 1332, with 57% taking the SAT or ACT. 30% of students take AP exams, with a 93% pass rate. The AP math and science enrollment rates are 19% and 10%. The chronic absenteeism rate is 11% for girls and 10% for boys.
A much high fraction of kids from Cupertino than Compton are college material.
The young blacks and hispanics are still influenced by their ancestral cultures which are less “booklearnin’” than the white and some Asian cultures.
In a nutshell, nothing surprising here. Nothing out of whack here.
Tiger moms always win ... just sayin
Compton, a college town described by former First Lady Barbara Bush as “lovely,” was the home of two future presidents—Bush 41 and 43, who lived in an apartment house at the corner of Santa Fe and Myrrh. The building was torn down sometime after 2002, when I last saw it. My aunt grew up in Compton and attended Compton high school.
Babe was talking about comptonabunkport
And your point?
What is meant by “chronic absenteeism rate”?
Absent on 10% or more of school days according to https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/cm/chronabscal.asp .
Clearly, Cupertino is a racist school
“Cupertino is 18% White, 65% Asian, 2% Black, and 10% Hispanic”
Cupertino schools were better then most a long time ago, going back to the late 1970s.
That’s why the Asians “moved there”. Before the 1990s, Cupertino was overwhelmingly white. Those people - H-P, Lockheed and Intel employees predominantly - built those schools into what they are.
What your little article SHOULD be about is the theft of American infrastructure by foreigners who moved into American towns and simply overwhelmed the existing - as in, “They didn’t build it” - institutions.
And THAT’s why Cuptertino high is now majority Asian with whites a minority in the schools that their ancestors built.
Cupertino has the same problem as cal and Harvard. Too many Asians. When you screen by race academically and want equal outcomes Asian kids lose out
Home schooling ping.
I remember in the 80 s. When white parents complained about the Vietnamese kids scoring too high. Sacramento school district. Letters to the sac bee creative and funny. The white parents stopped complaining
If you get rid of standardized tests in the admissions process, what's left is grades and class rank. But the academic achievement of a student who is the top 10% of his class varies a lot by school, as illustrated by Compton and Cupertino.
You sir, or ma’am, are a racist for using facts. Because, you know, facts are racist things.
and a much higher fraction of kids from Compton than Cupertuno are parasite material. Leftards want to evade reality because of their emotionalism.

I drive through Cupertino at least once a week. Seems like every mall has a least one tutoring center. Asians prize education above all else.
Directimente de Compton!
