This chart presents selected data from "performance reports" issued on 21 South Bay high schools by the state Department of Education. Because this is the first such "report card" on schools, the figures represent base line information for comparison in following years. There are no grades, just numbers, except where they were not available; the chart includes only selected figures. Similar data on schools in the Los Angeles Unified District is in today's Metro section.
