Antelope Meadows Elementary

Summary:

Antelope Meadows Elementary is a public elementary school in Antelope, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the Dry Creek Joint Elementary District, which is ranked 334 out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

While Antelope Meadows Elementary has a diverse student population, it faces some challenges, including high chronic absenteeism rates and lower-than-average test scores compared to the district and state. The school's proficiency rates in Smarter Balanced Assessments for English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics were lower than the district and state averages across all grade levels. For example, in 5th grade, the school's proficiency rate in ELA/Literacy was 46.38%, compared to 55.71% for the district and 46.69% for the state. However, the school's performance in supporting its English Language Learner (ELL) students is strong, ranking in the top 458 out of 3,240 California elementary schools for ELL students.

Interestingly, Antelope Meadows Elementary's performance on standardized tests is generally lower than the nearby Creekview Ranch and Dry Creek Connections Academy, which are also part of the Dry Creek Joint Elementary District. However, the school outperforms some nearby schools in other districts, such as Cyril Spinelli Elementary and Sierra View Elementary, which are part of the Center Joint Unified and Twin Rivers Unified districts, respectively.

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.
