Bowman Charter

Summary:

Bowman Charter is a public charter elementary school serving 596 students in grades K-8 in Auburn, California. As part of the Ackerman Charter District, which is ranked 194 out of 1,560 districts in the state, Bowman Charter has a predominantly White student population with significant Hispanic and multi-racial representation.

Bowman Charter consistently outperforms the state average in academic assessments, with proficiency rates ranging from 38.33% to 79.69% in English Language Arts and 42.19% to 70% in Math, compared to the state averages of 42.96% to 47.44% in ELA and 29.94% to 45.11% in Math. The school's science proficiency on the CAST exam also exceeds the state average, and its overall statewide ranking places it in the top 20-25% of California elementary schools. Notably, Bowman Charter's performance for Hispanic, low-socioeconomic, and disabled student groups is particularly strong, with these subgroups ranking in the top 20%, 10%, and 7% of California elementary schools, respectively.

While Bowman Charter's academic achievements are impressive, the school's chronic absenteeism rates have increased in recent years, from 5.9% in 2018-2019 to 19.7% in 2021-2022. This is an area the school may want to monitor and address to maintain its high performance. Compared to nearby schools like Harvest Ridge Cooperative Charter, Newcastle Charter, and Ophir STEAM Academy, Bowman Charter consistently outperforms in academic proficiency, while schools with higher percentages of socioeconomically disadvantaged students, such as Rock Creek Elementary and Auburn Elementary, tend to have lower academic proficiency rates.

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.
