Centralia Elementary

Summary:

Centralia Elementary is a public elementary school in Anaheim, California, serving 441 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school faces several key challenges, including a high percentage of Hispanic and low-income students, increasing chronic absenteeism, and declining test scores and statewide rankings.

Centralia Elementary has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (80.95%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 40.68% to 82.93% Hispanic students. The school has also experienced a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 9.3% in 2017-2018 to 32.1% in 2022-2023, notably higher than the 15.2% to 31.7% range of nearby schools. While Centralia Elementary's 6th-grade English Language Arts proficiency rate of 59.02% in 2022-2023 was higher than the state average of 44.16%, the school's overall performance in ELA and Mathematics lags behind the nearby schools and the state averages. Additionally, Centralia Elementary has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 86.57% to 88.44% over the past three years, significantly higher than the 56.21% to 93.78% range of nearby schools.

Centralia Elementary's statewide ranking has steadily declined over the past decade, from 1,855 out of 5,390 California elementary schools in 2011-2012 to 4,158 out of 5,848 in 2022-2023. The school's performance on various student subgroups, such as female students, male students, Hispanic students, English Language Learners, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, is generally lower than the state averages for those subgroups. While Centralia Elementary shares the same school district as some of the nearby schools, its performance lags behind many of them, particularly Buena Terra Elementary, which outperforms Centralia Elementary across multiple metrics.

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.
