Rolling Hills Elementary

Summary:

Rolling Hills Elementary is a public elementary school in Fullerton, California, serving 563 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the Fullerton Elementary District, which has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Rolling Hills Elementary has seen a decline in its statewide ranking and performance in recent years, the school faces several challenges. Its academic performance lags behind the district and state averages in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science, particularly for male students, Hispanic students, students with disabilities, and those from low socioeconomic backgrounds. The school's chronic absenteeism rate has also significantly increased, reaching 23.3% in 2022-2023, well above the state average. Nearby schools like Laguna Road Elementary and Beechwood Elementary outperform Rolling Hills Elementary in both academic performance and statewide rankings.

The high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds at Rolling Hills Elementary, with 47.6% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, may contribute to the school's lower academic performance. Addressing the root causes of the school's chronic absenteeism and the performance gaps for specific student groups could be crucial for improving overall student outcomes and providing a high-quality education for all students at Rolling Hills Elementary.

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.
