Millard McCollam Elementary

Summary:

Millard McCollam Elementary is a public elementary school in San Jose, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. With a diverse student population, the school consistently outperforms the Alum Rock Union Elementary District and the state of California in academic assessments, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics.

One of the school's key strengths is its strong performance in 3rd grade Mathematics, where 67.57% of students were proficient or better, compared to the district's 28.85% and the state's 45.11%. However, Millard McCollam Elementary has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 1.8% in the 2020-2021 school year to 14.7% in the 2022-2023 school year, which is higher than the state's average of 12.1%. The school's relatively low student-teacher ratio of 18.6 and lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (46.23%) compared to nearby schools may contribute to its academic success.

While Millard McCollam Elementary consistently outperforms other schools within the Alum Rock Union Elementary District, its performance is not as strong as the nearby schools in the Berryessa Union Elementary District, which have higher academic achievement and lower chronic absenteeism rates. The school's diverse student population and consistent academic performance, particularly in 3rd grade Mathematics, are notable strengths, but the increasing chronic absenteeism rate is a concern that the school should address to ensure continued student success.

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.
