School District Data for Monterey County


Here are a few statistics for Monterey County schools. The homeless number and the socioeconomically disadvantaged segment are staggering. Sometimes we live in a bubble and it's important to branch out and look beyond our small communities. Pacific Grove, Carmel and the surrounding area comprise a very small portion of the total student population. Other communities within the county have a disproportionate amount of low income households. We have to take care of these kids!

Enrollment by Subgroup:

  • English Learners: 34.3%

  • Foster Youth: .2%

  • Homeless: 9.9%

  • Migrant Students: 3.7%

Interesting note....I graduated from Pacific Grove High School in the early 80's. My graduating class was around 120. Today, I hear the the senior class remains about the same. We have limited land resources so population expansion is limited. Amazing how little has changed in 40 years!
