Page 2 shows the top thirty schools, by proportion of Hispanic/Latino students, with physical addresses within the boundaries of San Jose Unified School District, as well as the top school in Santa Clara county with Hispanic / Latino enrollment that would place it among the top thirty if it were located in San Jose Unified. For elementary schools, the floor is 64% Hispanic/Latino enrollment, while for middle schools it is 54% and 53% for high schools.

Finally, note that, for the purposes of these graphs, schools spanning grades K-8 are treated as if they are two separate—one elementary, one middle—school. This is done to control for differences between grade-level tests.
