Coyote Canyon Elementary

Summary:

Coyote Canyon Elementary is a public elementary school in Rancho Cucamonga, California, serving 771 students in grades K-4. This school is part of the Central Elementary School District, which is ranked 544 out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating.

Coyote Canyon Elementary consistently ranks in the top 20-25% of California elementary schools, with strong academic performance that exceeds both district and state averages. In 2022-2023, 66.67% of Coyote Canyon students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 52.69% for the Central Elementary district and 46.66% for California. The school's mathematics performance is also noteworthy, with 56.09% of students proficient or better, compared to 35.25% for the district and 34.62% for the state. Coyote Canyon's diverse student population, with 49.03% Hispanic and 15.82% Asian students, is a key differentiating factor compared to some nearby schools.

While Coyote Canyon outperforms nearby Central Elementary and Cucamonga Elementary schools, its academic performance is not as strong as some higher-performing schools in the Alta Loma and Etiwanda Elementary districts, such as Caryn Elementary, Banyan Elementary, and Carleton P. Lightfoot Elementary. However, Coyote Canyon's ability to support a significant population of economically disadvantaged students is commendable. The school's recent increase in chronic absenteeism, from 7.4% in 2017-2018 to 23.5% in 2022-2023, is an area of concern that warrants further investigation and targeted interventions.

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.
