Cabrillo Elementary

Summary:

Cabrillo Elementary is a public elementary school in Fremont, California, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade. With a diverse student population, the school faces significant challenges in academic performance, particularly in comparison to nearby schools within the Fremont Unified district.

Cabrillo Elementary's academic performance, as measured by state assessments, is significantly lower than the district and state averages. In the 2022-2023 school year, the percentage of students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy ranged from 24.07% to 36.96%, compared to the district's range of 71.56% to 76.04% and the state's range of 42.96% to 46.69%. In Mathematics, the school's proficiency rates ranged from 13.56% to 28%, while the district and state averages were much higher. The school's performance in Science is also significantly lower than the district and state. Additionally, Cabrillo Elementary has experienced a concerning rise in chronic absenteeism, from 8.2% in 2017-2018 to 20.1% in 2022-2023, which may be impacting the school's academic outcomes.

Cabrillo Elementary's academic performance is significantly lower than nearby schools in the Fremont Unified district, such as Oliveira Elementary, Patterson Elementary, and Brookvale Elementary, which have much higher proficiency rates in core subjects. The stark contrast in performance raises concerns about equity and access to quality education, particularly for the school's Hispanic, low-income, and special education students, who perform significantly worse than their peers.

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.
