Note: Based on 2002-2003 school year data In recent years, SCUSD has also added Gateway School, an intervention program for grades 9 & 10, and for students who either are not prepared for the comprehensive high school or have had tremendous academic difficulty in getting to 9th grade.

SCUSD also has a dual enrollment program at Mission College called Mission Middle College Program. This is an alternative educational program that is based upon the dual enrollment model of 50% community college enrollment and 50% high school enrollment. Students self-select and apply to the program and then are enrolled in their junior year. This program is almost invisible in the district as there is uneven levels of administrative support despite the program's college acceptance and attendance results.
