Granada Elementary

Summary:

Granada Elementary is a public K-8 school in Alhambra, California, serving a student population of 369. 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.

While Granada Elementary has a significantly higher Hispanic student population (71.27%) compared to nearby schools, it faces several challenges. The school has a high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 8.4% to 36.1% over the past few years, notably higher than the 11.4% to 24.4% range of nearby schools. Academically, Granada Elementary's test scores are consistently lower than the Alhambra Unified School District and California state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 33.06% of Granada Elementary students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 62.99% in the Alhambra Unified School District and 46.66% in California.

When comparing Granada Elementary to nearby schools, the differences are stark. In 2022-2023, Granada Elementary's 33.06% proficiency rate in English Language Arts was significantly lower than the 59.21% rate at Park Elementary and the 72.93% rate at Coolidge Elementary, both within the Alhambra Unified School District. This suggests that Granada Elementary is not keeping pace with the performance of other elementary schools in the area.

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.
