New Horizons Charter Academy

Summary:

New Horizons Charter Academy is a public charter elementary school serving 256 students in grades K-8 in North Hollywood, California, and is part of the Los Angeles Unified school district.

While New Horizons Charter Academy has a significantly higher Hispanic student population (67.19%) compared to nearby schools, its academic performance, as measured by Smarter Balanced Assessments, is generally lower than the state and nearby school averages. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics were below the California state averages across most grade levels in 2022-2023. Additionally, New Horizons Charter Academy has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 44.0%, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools, and a high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (82.03%), indicating a higher proportion of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

Interestingly, while New Horizons Charter Academy's overall performance is lower than the state and nearby schools, the school's English Language Learner students rank higher, at 542 out of 3240 California elementary schools in 2022-2023. However, nearby schools, such as Colfax Charter Elementary and ISANA Palmati Academy, have significantly higher academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates compared to New Horizons Charter Academy, despite serving similar student populations. These factors suggest the need for targeted interventions and support to improve student outcomes at New Horizons Charter Academy.

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.
