Turner Elementary

Summary:

Turner Elementary is a public elementary school in Antioch, California, serving 436 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the Antioch Unified School District, which is ranked 1350 out of 1560 districts in California and has a rating of 1 star out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Turner Elementary faces several significant challenges. The school has a much higher chronic absenteeism rate of 30.8% compared to nearby schools like Marsh Elementary (54.3%) and Fremont Elementary (46.8%). Academically, only 13.79% of Turner Elementary students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 26.32% in the Antioch Unified district and 46.66% statewide. In Mathematics, just 8.87% of Turner Elementary students were proficient, versus 13.7% in the district and 34.62% across California. The school also has a higher percentage of Hispanic (47.71%) and African American (20.18%) students than surrounding schools, and 73.85% of its students come from low-income families, higher than nearby schools.

These challenges suggest that Turner Elementary is struggling to provide its students with the support and resources they need to succeed. Interestingly, the two Antioch Charter Academy schools in the area have significantly higher academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates, indicating that alternative educational models may be more effective in the Antioch area. Addressing the issues at Turner Elementary will likely require a comprehensive approach, including targeted interventions, additional resources, and collaboration with the broader community.

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.
