Madison (James) Elementary

Summary:

Madison (James) Elementary is a public elementary school in Anaheim, California, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade. With a diverse student population, the school stands out for its strong academic performance, outpacing the surrounding Anaheim Elementary District and the state of California in several key areas.

Despite having a higher percentage of socioeconomically disadvantaged students compared to nearby schools, Madison (James) Elementary has demonstrated impressive academic results. In the 2022-2023 school year, the school had significantly higher percentages of students proficient or better in Smarter Balanced Assessments for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics across multiple grade levels, including 47.54% of 3rd graders proficient or better in ELA/Literacy, compared to 24.53% in the district and 42.96% statewide, and 62.5% of 3rd graders proficient or better in Mathematics, compared to 28.66% in the district and 45.11% statewide. This suggests the school may have effective teaching practices and support systems in place to help students succeed.

However, the school is also facing a concerning trend of rising chronic absenteeism, which has increased from 8.3% in 2017-2018 to 27.4% in 2022-2023, higher than the surrounding schools. This issue warrants further investigation and attention from the school and district. Additionally, Madison (James) Elementary has a unique racial makeup, with a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic (69.25%) and Asian (17.86%) students compared to the district, which could present both opportunities and challenges in addressing the needs of diverse student groups.

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.
