Here’s an opportunity that doesn’t come along every day! Wouldn’t you like to enroll your teen in Lynbrook High School, in the “we’re actively throwing nonresidents out of our schools” Fremont Union HSD?
Of course, there’s a catch. To take advantage of this amazing offer, you have to already live in the FUHSD attendance area. Talk about the rich getting richer! Here’s the most recent test scores, for those fortunate enough to consider this amazing (and very limited) opportunity.
|School||City||2010 Growth, 2009 base API|
|Cupertino HS||Cupertino||891 / 879|
|Fremont HS||Sunnyvale||730 / 740|
|Homestead HS||Cupertino*||858 / 852|
|Lynbrook HS||San Jose||939 / 925|
|Monta Vista HS||Cupertino||943 / 935|
*Located right at Cupertino/Sunnyvale border and the vast majority of students are from Sunnyvale, with remainder from Cupertino and Los Altos. Hey Fremont, the “growth” API means it’s supposed to get BIGGER than the “base” score. That means the growth number is supposed to go UP. You know. MORE.
And some other wanna-be high schools are almost as aggressive about removing “illegal students” as FUHSD. What a sincere form of flattery, hiring a private detective to ferret out people living on the wrong street.
