Two Rivers Elementary

Summary:

Two Rivers Elementary is a public elementary school in Sacramento, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the Natomas Unified School District.

Two Rivers Elementary outperforms the district and state in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency, with particularly strong performance in 4th grade ELA. The school also serves its African American and Hispanic student populations well, ranking highly in these subgroups. However, the school has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, which is notably higher than the state average. Additionally, the performance of the school's Asian and multi-racial student populations is relatively low, an area that warrants further investigation and support.

However, when compared to schools in the neighboring Washington Unified School District, such as Westfield Village Elementary and Riverbank Elementary, the performance of Two Rivers Elementary is more mixed.

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.
