Richman Elementary

Summary:

Richman Elementary is a public elementary school in Fullerton, California, serving 487 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the Fullerton Elementary District, which has a 3-star rating out of 5 from SchoolDigger. Richman Elementary has a predominantly Hispanic student population (82.55%) and a high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds (83.16% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch).

Academically, Richman Elementary's performance on standardized tests is generally lower than the Fullerton Elementary District and the state of California averages. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, the percentage of Richman Elementary students proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy ranged from 41.18% to 46.48%, compared to the district's range of 54.22% to 58.93%. In Mathematics, the school's proficiency rates ranged from 38.03% to 45.10%, compared to the district's 46.45% to 55.94%. Richman Elementary also has a relatively high chronic absenteeism rate of 17.2%, higher than the rates of nearby schools like Raymond Elementary and Fern Drive Elementary.

However, Richman Elementary's performance for certain subgroups, such as Hispanic students and English Language Learners, is relatively strong compared to other subgroups in the school and the state. Additionally, the school's performance is higher than some nearby schools in the Anaheim Elementary District, such as Henry (Patrick) Elementary and Mann (Horace) Elementary. The high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds and the relatively high chronic absenteeism rate may be contributing factors to Richman Elementary's lower academic performance compared to the district and state averages.

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.
