AeroSTEM Academy

Summary:

AeroSTEM Academy is a public charter high school in Yuba City, California, serving grades 6-12 with a total enrollment of 133 students. The school has a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Hispanic students compared to nearby schools.

Academically, AeroSTEM Academy faces some challenges. The school's performance on standardized tests, such as Smarter Balanced Assessments and CAST, is generally below the state averages across various grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, the school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts/Literacy ranged from 16.67% to 45.83%, compared to the state averages of 44.16% to 47.44%. In Mathematics, the school's proficiency rates ranged from 20.83% to 26.92%, compared to the state averages of 33.16% to 29.94%. However, the school's performance in Science, as measured by CAST, was slightly better than the state averages. Additionally, AeroSTEM Academy has a relatively low four-year graduation rate of 40.0% and a high dropout rate of 60.0% for the 2022-2023 school year, which is significantly higher than the nearby Lindhurst High (86.6%) and River Valley High (85.7%).

The school's challenges may be partly attributed to its high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, with 72.93% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch in the 2022-2023 school year. This factor, combined with the school's diverse student population, may present unique challenges and opportunities for AeroSTEM Academy. While the school's performance is generally lower than the nearby schools, its performance in Science is relatively better, and it serves a community with a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students, which should be considered when evaluating the school's overall performance and identifying areas for improvement.

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.
