El Roble Elementary

Summary:

El Roble Elementary is a public elementary school in Gilroy, California, serving 561 students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the Gilroy Unified School District.

El Roble Elementary faces several challenges, including a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (67.74%) compared to the state average, lower academic performance on standardized tests than the district and state, and a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, reaching 37% in the 2022-2023 school year. The school also has a high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, at 59.89%. When compared to nearby schools within the Gilroy Unified School District, El Roble's performance lags behind schools like Luigi Aprea Elementary and Gilroy Prep, which have more diverse student populations and higher academic achievement.

El Roble Elementary's statewide ranking has steadily declined over the past decade, from 2,780 out of 5,530 California elementary schools in 2012-2013 to 3,968 out of 5,848 schools in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school has struggled to keep up with the academic progress seen in other California elementary schools. To address these challenges, the school and district may need to implement targeted interventions and support programs to improve student attendance, provide additional academic support, and address the unique needs of the school's diverse student population.

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.
