Elementary Schools in Bellflower Unified


The Bellflower Unified School District in California is home to 10 elementary schools serving students from kindergarten through 6th grade. The schools in this district vary widely in their academic performance, with some standout schools like Intensive Learning Center and Stephen Foster Elementary ranking among the top 25% of California elementary schools, while others like Washington Elementary and Frank E. Woodruff Elementary struggle with low proficiency rates and rankings in the bottom 10% statewide.

The data reveals significant disparities in student demographics and socioeconomic status across the district, with high rates of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch at many schools. This appears to correlate with academic performance, as the schools with the highest poverty rates tend to have the lowest proficiency in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Chronic absenteeism is also a concern, with several schools reporting over 30% of students chronically absent, which can negatively impact learning.

Overall, the Bellflower Unified School District faces challenges in providing equitable educational opportunities for all students. The district may need to implement targeted interventions, allocate resources more effectively, and focus on continuous improvement efforts to help the lower-performing schools catch up to their higher-achieving counterparts and ensure that all students in the district receive a high-quality education.
