Stoddard (Alexander J.) Elementary

Summary:

Stoddard (Alexander J.) Elementary is a public elementary school in Anaheim, California, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade. With a diverse student population that is predominantly Hispanic, the school has consistently outperformed the Anaheim Elementary District in academic metrics, including standardized test scores in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics.

Stoddard (Alexander J.) Elementary's academic performance is particularly strong among specific student subgroups, such as English Language Learners and Special Education students, ranking in the top 25% of California elementary schools in these categories. However, the school has faced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 7.2% in 2018-2019 to 30.8% in 2022-2023, which may indicate challenges in student engagement or attendance that need to be addressed.

While Stoddard (Alexander J.) Elementary outperforms nearby schools in the Anaheim Elementary District, such as Madison (James) Elementary and Anaheim Elementary Online Academy, it lags behind some higher-performing schools in the neighboring Garden Grove Unified district, such as Parkview Elementary and Ethel M. Evans Elementary. This disparity may be influenced by the school's high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, which can be a significant factor in student achievement.

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.
