Loara Elementary

Summary:

Loara Elementary is a public elementary school in Anaheim, California, serving 494 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school stands out for its strong academic performance, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics, despite serving a predominantly Hispanic and low-income student population.

Loara Elementary outperforms the Anaheim Elementary District and the state average in several key areas. In the 2022-2023 school year, 38.82% of Loara students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 28.27% for the district and 46.66% for the state. In Mathematics, 33.2% of Loara students were proficient or better, compared to 22.65% for the district and 34.62% for the state. This suggests the school is effectively supporting its predominantly Hispanic and low-income student population.

However, Loara Elementary has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 8.8% in 2017-2018 to 31.5% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the surrounding schools and the state average. This concerning trend warrants further investigation and targeted interventions. Comparing Loara Elementary to nearby schools like Ross (Betsy) Elementary and Westmont Elementary, which have similar demographics but lower academic performance, could provide insights into the effective practices and strategies used at Loara 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.
