Academically, the school performs above the state average in English Language Arts (46.85% proficient) and Mathematics (43.05% proficient). However, the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 4.0% in 2020-2021 to 26.3% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the state average and nearby schools in the Alta Loma Elementary District.

Compared to other elementary schools in the Alta Loma Elementary District, Alta Loma Elementary generally performs on par or slightly better in academic assessments. However, its higher chronic absenteeism rate and larger percentage of students from low-income families set it apart. The school's Hispanic students perform particularly well, ranking 1,613 out of 5,079 California elementary schools, while its White students rank lower at 996 out of 2,726 schools. Over the past few years, the school has seen a slight decline in enrollment and a gradual decrease in the percentage of White students, which may reflect demographic changes in the local community.

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.
