Crowell Elementary

Summary:

Crowell Elementary is a public elementary school in Turlock, California, serving 672 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school faces significant challenges, with consistently low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism rates compared to the district and state averages.

Crowell Elementary has seen a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 15.8% in 2018-2019 to 39.7% in the 2022-2023 school year, which is notably higher than the Turlock Unified School District and the state of California. Academically, the school consistently underperforms, with only 23.17% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy and 10.63% in Mathematics, compared to the district's 38.63% and 24.92%, and the state's 46.66% and 34.62%, respectively. Crowell Elementary's subgroups, such as Hispanic students, English Language Learners, and students from low-income families, also struggle, ranking in the bottom quartile of California elementary schools.

Interestingly, the nearby schools in the Turlock Unified School District, such as Dennis G. Earl Elementary, Wakefield Elementary, and Sandra Tovar Medeiros Elementary, generally outperform Crowell Elementary in academic achievement. This may be due to the fact that Crowell Elementary has a significantly higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (81.4%) compared to the nearby schools, which range from 36.6% to 66.2%, suggesting that Crowell serves a higher proportion of students from low-income families.

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.

Open Quote My son attends this school and it seems like the principal has a personal issue with my child. She allowed my son to be choked out by another student and that student was allowed to stay but my son is geting kicked out due to attendance. The principal is very bias and unprofessional Close Quote

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.
