Del Obispo Elementary

Summary:

Del Obispo Elementary is a public elementary school in San Juan Capistrano, California, serving 319 students in grades K-5. The school is part of the Capistrano Unified School District, which is ranked 181 out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

Del Obispo Elementary has a relatively diverse student population, with 38.56% White, 47.34% Hispanic, 2.19% Asian, and 11.6% two or more races. This diversity is higher compared to nearby schools like John Malcom Elementary (68.8% White) and Kinoshita Elementary (95.12% Hispanic). However, the school's academic performance, as measured by Smarter Balanced Assessments, is mixed compared to the district and state averages. While the 5th-grade proficiency rate in English Language Arts/Literacy (66.67%) was higher than the state average of 46.69%, the school's overall proficiency rates ranged from 38% to 66.67%, which is lower than the Capistrano Unified School District's range of 64.51% to 70.24%.

Another area of concern at Del Obispo Elementary is the significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 10.8% in 2018-2019 to 28.4% in 2022-2023. This rate is higher than the nearby schools, such as John Malcom Elementary (20.4%) and Kinoshita Elementary (24.5%). Additionally, Del Obispo Elementary has a relatively high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, at 64.89% in 2022-2023, which is higher than some of the nearby schools. These factors suggest that the school may face additional challenges in supporting its diverse student population and addressing their academic and social-emotional needs.

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.

Open Quote There is an excellent atmosphere of community and genuinely caring for the students' achievement. My daughter was fortunate enough to attend kindergarten here and her confidence shot up in a matter of weeks. They take children without the educational background and by the time they graduate they are miles from where they once were. Close Quote

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.
