    A School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is published each year for the most recently completed school year for each school in the district. The profile provides information about the school and its students including demographic data, school safety information, academic achievement data, school completion rates, class sizes, teacher and staff information, curriculum and instruction information, postsecondary preparation information, and fiscal and expenditure data.

    About Us

    Cabrillo was originally opened as an intermediate school in 1962. It was closed in 1982 because of a decline in district enrollment, accompanied by a decision to house all middle school students in the district on two other campuses. Ten years later, a projected upturn in the student population, along with a desire to provide students with smaller, more personalized middle schools, resulted in reopening the campus. As Cabrillo rededicated itself to overall excellence, emphasis has been placed on science, writing across the curriculum, and technology.

    Our student population is culturally diverse, and almost one-third of our students receive free or reduced price lunches. The occupational and educational levels of the parents run a gamut similar to our ethnicity. Approximately 10% of our population receive support from special education services, and about 25% of Cabrillo students are being educated in a language other than the one native to their homes. Diversity makes Cabrillo rich, as students have an opportunity to get a world-view within the confines of a dozen or so acres. The Cabrillo School Community is committed to providing students with a flexible and creative instructional program that employs sound educational practices supported by mutual respect, the acceptance of diversity, and the shared responsibility of school, home and community. The Cabrillo mission is compatible with the district’s intent to, “Prepare every student to succeed in an ever-changing world.”
