Bannon Creek

Summary:

Bannon Creek is an elementary school located in Sacramento, California, serving grades K-8 with a student population of 457. The school is part of the Natomas Unified School District, which is ranked 873 out of 1,560 districts in California and has a 2-star rating out of 5 from SchoolDigger.

Bannon Creek has consistently ranked in the bottom 5-10% of California elementary schools over the past decade, with a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years. The school has a significantly higher percentage of African American (30.63%) and Hispanic (38.73%) students compared to the surrounding schools, and has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 17.6% in 2018-2019 to 40.3% in 2022-2023. Academically, Bannon Creek's performance, as measured by proficiency rates on Smarter Balanced Assessments, is consistently well below the state and district averages across all grade levels and subject areas, with only 11.81% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy and 5.88% proficient or better in Mathematics at the end-of-course level. Additionally, Bannon Creek has a high percentage of students (80.09%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Compared to nearby schools, such as Two Rivers Elementary and Witter Ranch Elementary, which are also part of the Natomas Unified School District, Bannon Creek's performance is significantly lower, with higher academic proficiency rates, lower chronic absenteeism, and better overall SchoolDigger ratings. Additionally, the virtual school Larry G. Meeks Academy, also within the Natomas Unified School District, outperforms Bannon Creek in both English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics, suggesting that the virtual learning environment may be more effective for some students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
