Franklin (Benjamin) Elementary

Summary:

Franklin (Benjamin) Elementary is a public elementary school in Anaheim, California, serving 633 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the Anaheim Elementary District, which is ranked 1222 out of 1560 districts in the state.

Despite being part of a lower-ranked district, Franklin (Benjamin) Elementary outperforms the district and state in several key academic areas. The school has significantly higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics compared to the surrounding Orange Grove Elementary, Ross (Betsy) Elementary, and other nearby schools. Additionally, the school's science proficiency rate of 20.22% is higher than the district's 17.73% and the state's 30.18%. This suggests Franklin (Benjamin) Elementary may have effective teaching practices and strategies in place.

However, the school is facing a concerning trend of increasing chronic absenteeism, rising from 7.8% in 2018-2019 to 32.5% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the surrounding schools. The school also has a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at 73.14% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the nearby schools. These factors may be contributing to the academic challenges faced by the predominantly Hispanic student population at Franklin (Benjamin) Elementary.

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.
