Colfax Elementary


Colfax Elementary is the sole school serving grades K-8 in the Colfax Elementary district in Colfax, California. With a total enrollment of 342 students, the school's performance appears to be below the state average, as evidenced by its declining statewide ranking and underperformance on standardized tests.

However, the school faces significant challenges, including a high chronic absenteeism rate of 28.9% and a relatively high percentage of students (43.27%) eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population. These factors may be contributing to the school's academic struggles, as evidenced by its below-average performance on standardized tests in both English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics.

Overall, the data suggests that Colfax Elementary is a struggling school that needs to implement significant interventions and improvements to better support student learning and achievement. The school's declining ranking, low test scores, high chronic absenteeism, and high percentage of economically disadvantaged students indicate that the school may be facing significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to its students.
