Faylane Elementary

Summary:

Faylane Elementary is a public elementary school in Garden Grove, California, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade. With a diverse student population and a high percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, Faylane Elementary has consistently outperformed state and district averages in academic performance.

Faylane Elementary's academic achievements are particularly noteworthy. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science are significantly higher than state and district averages, with some grade levels exceeding the state average by over 15 percentage points. The school's performance for specific student groups, such as English Language Learners and students with disabilities, is also exceptional, ranking in the top 15% and top 25% of California elementary schools, respectively. Additionally, the school's Hispanic and Asian students perform at a high level, with rankings in the top 25% and top 40% of California elementary schools.

While Faylane Elementary's academic performance is impressive, the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 4.5% in the 2017-2018 school year to 20.8% in the 2022-2023 school year. This trend is not unique to Faylane Elementary, as many nearby schools in the Garden Grove Unified and Anaheim Elementary School Districts have also experienced similar increases in chronic absenteeism. This suggests that the school and district may need to collaborate with community partners to address the underlying factors contributing to this issue.

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.
