Taylor Mountain Elementary

Summary:

Taylor Mountain Elementary is a public elementary school in Santa Rosa, California, serving 444 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the Bellevue Union District, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Taylor Mountain Elementary faces significant challenges, including a high chronic absenteeism rate of 30.8% (compared to the state average of 14.3%), and lower-than-average academic performance in both English Language Arts and Mathematics. The school's student population is predominantly Hispanic (82.88%), and a high percentage of students (77.72% to 81.38%) receive free or reduced-price lunch. Compared to nearby schools like Cesar Chavez Language Academy and Marguerite Hahn Elementary, Taylor Mountain Elementary has the highest chronic absenteeism rate and generally lower academic performance.

The high chronic absenteeism rate and the school's focus on serving a predominantly Hispanic student population suggest that addressing the specific educational needs and challenges faced by these students could be key to improving academic outcomes. Additionally, the broader challenges faced by the local education system, as evidenced by the performance of nearby schools, indicate that a more comprehensive, district-wide approach may be necessary to address the systemic issues affecting Taylor Mountain Elementary and the surrounding area.

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.
