Cyril Spinelli Elementary

Summary:

Cyril Spinelli Elementary is a public elementary school in Antelope, California, serving 286 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school faces several challenges, including declining academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a student population with a higher proportion of low-socioeconomic status.

Cyril Spinelli Elementary has a diverse student population, with a racial makeup of 30.77% White, 5.94% African American, 36.71% Hispanic, and 16.43% Asian. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by the Smarter Balanced Assessments, is generally lower than the state and Center Joint Unified district averages. The school has also experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 12.0% in 2018-2019 to 31.3% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the state average and the nearby schools like Antelope Meadows Elementary and Barrett Ranch Elementary.

Cyril Spinelli Elementary's statewide ranking has declined over the years, and the school's performance data for different student subgroups reveals significant disparities. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, the school's ranking for Hispanic students was 3993 out of 5079 California elementary schools, while the ranking for White students was 2028 out of 2659. To address these issues, the school and the Center Joint Unified district may need to implement targeted interventions, strengthen family engagement, and explore strategies to improve attendance and academic achievement, particularly for underperforming subgroups.

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.
