Emery Park Elementary

Summary:

Emery Park Elementary is a public K-8 school in Alhambra, California, serving a student population of 372. The school is part of the Alhambra Unified School District, which is ranked 281 out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

Emery Park Elementary stands out for its significantly higher Hispanic student population (72.04%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 35.56% to 59.88% Hispanic students. While the school's Hispanic and low-income students perform relatively well, ranking in the top 25% and 26% of California elementary schools, respectively, the school's overall test scores, particularly in mathematics, are lower than the district and state averages. For example, the school's 6th-grade proficiency rate in Smarter Balanced Assessments/Mathematics was 27.5%, compared to the district's 50.9% and the state's 33.19%. Additionally, Emery Park has experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 4.9% in 2020-2021 to 31.0% in 2022-2023, higher than the surrounding schools.

Compared to other schools in the Alhambra Unified School District, such as Garfield Elementary and Park Elementary, Emery Park's performance is generally lower, with higher test scores and lower chronic absenteeism rates. However, the school outperforms some nearby schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District, such as Cesar Chavez Elementary and Sierra Park Elementary. By addressing the high chronic absenteeism and low test scores, particularly in mathematics, Emery Park Elementary can work to improve the educational outcomes for its students and better serve the Alhambra community.

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.
