Aloha Elementary

Summary:

Aloha Elementary is a public elementary school in Lakewood, California, serving 297 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the ABC Unified School District, which has a 4-star rating out of 5 from SchoolDigger.

Aloha Elementary faces significant challenges compared to the district and state averages, as well as nearby schools like Carver (Charles J.) Elementary and Nixon (Patricia) Elementary. The school's academic performance, as measured by standardized tests, is significantly lower across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, the percentage of Aloha Elementary students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy ranged from 16.67% in 6th grade to 50% in 5th grade, compared to the district average of 62.65% to 64.47% and the state average of 44.16% to 46.69%. The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 33.6%, which is significantly higher than the district and state averages.

However, Aloha Elementary's African American and English Language Learner students have relatively high rankings within the state, suggesting that the school may be able to leverage the strengths of these subgroups to identify and replicate effective practices that can benefit the entire student population. To address the school's challenges, the district should consider implementing targeted academic interventions, developing strategies to reduce chronic absenteeism, and providing additional resources and support for students and 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.

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.
