Brisbane Elementary

Summary:

Brisbane Elementary is a public elementary school in Brisbane, CA that serves 205 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. This school stands out for its consistently strong academic performance, diverse student population, and relatively low rates of chronic absenteeism and free/reduced-price lunch compared to nearby schools.

Brisbane Elementary consistently outperforms the state average in both English Language Arts and Mathematics on standardized tests, with 61.17% of students proficient or better in ELA and 68.93% in Mathematics, compared to state averages of 46.66% and 34.62% respectively. The school also has a diverse student population, with 25.37% White, 21.46% Hispanic, 34.63% Asian, and 17.56% two or more races. This diversity is higher than many nearby schools, which tend to have a higher concentration of Hispanic and/or Asian students. Additionally, Brisbane Elementary has a relatively low chronic absenteeism rate of 17.2%, compared to nearby schools like Los Cerritos Elementary (39.4%), KIPP Bayview Elementary (58.9%), and Harte (Bret) Elementary (59.7%). The school also has a lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (15.61%) compared to many nearby schools, which range from 49.7% to 92.55%.

These strong academic outcomes, diverse student population, and relatively low rates of chronic absenteeism and free/reduced-price lunch suggest that Brisbane Elementary is a high-performing school that is effectively supporting the learning needs of its students. However, the school's ranking for specific student subgroups, such as Asian and Hispanic students, is not as high as its overall ranking, which could indicate potential equity issues that the school may need to address to ensure all students are receiving the support they need to succeed.

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.
