Alpha Technology Middle stands out from nearby middle schools in several key ways. The school has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (50.62%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 18.27% to 63.01% Hispanic students. Alpha Technology Middle also has a very high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 16.9% to 38.2% over the past few years, much higher than the 3.7% to 46.4% range of nearby schools. Academically, the school consistently performs significantly below the state and nearby district averages in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science proficiency levels. For example, in 2022-2023, the school's proficiency rates ranged from 7.41% to 22.22% in Mathematics and 16.67% to 22.22% in English Language Arts, compared to the state averages of 29.94% to 46.66%. Additionally, Alpha Technology Middle has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 53.42% to 75.31% over the past few years, significantly higher than the 38.21% to 96.38% range of nearby schools.

The data suggests that Alpha Technology Middle is a struggling school that faces significant challenges in providing a quality education to its students. The school's low performance, high chronic absenteeism, and demographic challenges indicate that it may need to implement targeted interventions and strategies to improve student outcomes. When compared to the Roseville City Elementary, Natomas Unified, Twin Rivers Unified, and Center Joint Unified school districts, Alpha Technology Middle stands out as an outlier, with much lower test scores, higher chronic absenteeism, and a higher percentage of low-income students.

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.
