Hillsdale Elementary

Summary:

Hillsdale Elementary is a public elementary school located in North Highlands, California, serving 251 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the Twin Rivers Unified school district, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Hillsdale Elementary has a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Hispanic students (54.18%) compared to nearby schools. The school has shown mixed academic performance, outperforming the district in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency in some grade levels, but still lagging behind state averages. Notably, the school's English Language Learner students have performed exceptionally well, ranking in the top 115 out of 3,240 California elementary schools. However, Hillsdale Elementary has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 10.2% in 2018-2019 to 29.5% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the nearby schools and the state average. Additionally, the school has a high percentage of students (86.45%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

When compared to the nearby schools in the Twin Rivers Unified district, Hillsdale Elementary generally performs better in academic proficiency, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics. However, the school's chronic absenteeism rate is higher than most of the nearby schools, which may be a contributing factor to its academic performance. The school's fluctuating statewide ranking, ranging from 2,437 out of 5,848 California elementary schools in 2022-2023 to 4,296 out of 5,662 in 2017-2018, suggests that its performance has been inconsistent, with periods of improvement and decline.

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.
