Demographic Profile of MPN Students
The four schools in the Mission Promise Neighborhood (MPN) area serve 1,637 students from grades K-12 and draw 41% of their students from the Mission neighborhood. These schools have more Latino and more economically disadvantaged children than the neighborhood as a whole and thus also serve more English language learners and children of single parent families. While they provide critical services to some of the San Francisco Unified’s most vulnerable students, MPN schools are also among the lowest performing schools in the district with all but John O’Connell ranking in the bottom 10% in relation to similar schools in the state. Despite challenges, Cesar Chavez Elementary, Bryant Elementary, Everett Middle School, and John O’Connell Technical Alternative High School are all working to meet the complex needs of their diverse student bodies. Over the past three years all four schools have seen API growth, made necessary infrastructure investments to maintain safe and secure schools, and developed important community partnerships to support their students and families.
