ISANA Nascent Academy

Summary:

ISANA Nascent Academy is a public charter elementary school serving grades K-8 in a diverse area of Los Angeles, CA. With a majority Hispanic (72.9%) and African American (24.24%) student population, the school faces significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to its students.

ISANA Nascent Academy's performance lags behind state and local averages across several key metrics. The school has a very high chronic absenteeism rate of 40.1%, which is much higher than the state average. Its test scores are also significantly lower than the state and district averages, with proficiency rates of just 32.72% in English Language Arts and 14.89% in Mathematics. This performance gap is particularly pronounced for the school's African American and Hispanic students, as well as its English Language Learners and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds. In comparison, Lashon Academy City, a nearby charter school, has higher proficiency rates and a lower chronic absenteeism rate.

The high rates of chronic absenteeism and economic disadvantage among ISANA Nascent Academy's student population may be contributing to the school's lower academic performance. Addressing these underlying factors, as well as implementing targeted interventions and strengthening teacher support, could be crucial in driving academic progress and better serving the diverse needs of the school's community. While ISANA Nascent Academy faces significant challenges, there is substantial room for improvement, and the school's leadership and community will need to work together to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed.

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.
