Intensive Learning Center

Summary:

Intensive Learning Center is an elementary school in Lakewood, California, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade as part of the Bellflower Unified School District. The school has a diverse student population, with a majority of Hispanic and African American students.

Intensive Learning Center consistently outperforms the Bellflower Unified School District and the state of California in academic assessments, with higher percentages of students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics across all grade levels. The school's African American and Hispanic student subgroups perform exceptionally well, ranking in the top 100 and top 1,000 California elementary schools, respectively. However, the school has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 6.2% to 20.1% in the past five years, which is an area of concern.

Compared to nearby schools, Intensive Learning Center outperforms Esther Lindstrom Elementary, Craig Williams Elementary, and Thomas Jefferson Elementary in both English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics assessments. However, the nearby Stephen Foster Elementary and Madison Elementary, which are part of the Long Beach Unified School District, have higher academic performance in several grade levels and subject areas.

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.
