Jack London Elementary

Summary:

Jack London Elementary is a public elementary school in Antioch, California, serving 468 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the Antioch Unified School District, which is ranked 1350 out of 1560 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Jack London Elementary faces significant challenges, including a diverse student population with a higher percentage of African American (26.28%) and Hispanic (45.3%) students compared to the state average. The school consistently ranks in the bottom 15% of California elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger and proficiency rates in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics that are significantly lower than the state and district averages, with only around 20-25% of students meeting or exceeding standards. Additionally, the school has a very high chronic absenteeism rate, reaching 46.2% in the 2022-2023 school year, more than double the state average. A large majority (81.84%) of Jack London Elementary students come from low-income families, as indicated by the high percentage of free and reduced-price lunch recipients.

While Jack London Elementary's overall performance is low, its African American and Hispanic student subgroups perform significantly better than the school's overall performance, ranking in the middle to upper-middle range compared to other schools in the state. However, nearby schools within the Antioch Unified School District, such as Belshaw Elementary and Sutter Elementary, also struggle with low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism rates, suggesting systemic challenges within the district. In contrast, schools outside the Antioch Unified School District, such as Pioneer Elementary in the Brentwood Union Elementary School District, demonstrate significantly higher academic achievement, with proficiency rates well above the state average.

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.
