Cucamonga Elementary

Summary:

Cucamonga Elementary is a public elementary school located in Rancho Cucamonga, California, serving 445 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the Cucamonga Elementary School District, which is ranked 1356 out of 1560 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Cucamonga Elementary has a predominantly Hispanic student population, with 69.89% Hispanic students, which is higher than nearby Dona Merced Elementary (53.14%) but lower than Ontario Center (57.85%) and Arroyo Elementary (89.51%). Academically, Cucamonga Elementary's performance is significantly below the state average in both English Language Arts and Mathematics, with only 21.13% to 33.33% of students proficient or better in ELA and 11.27% to 26.15% proficient or better in Math, compared to state averages of 42.96% to 46.69% and 33.38% to 45.11%, respectively. The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 32.4%, higher than nearby schools.

Cucamonga Elementary's statewide ranking has steadily declined over the years, from 2710 out of 5611 California elementary schools in 2014-2015 to 4759 out of 5848 in 2022-2023, with a consistent 1-star rating. This trend suggests the school's academic performance has not kept pace with the state's overall improvement, and the school's performance for specific student subgroups, such as Hispanic students, English Language Learners, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, is also significantly below the state average. Compared to nearby higher-performing schools like Coyote Canyon Elementary, Cucamonga Elementary's challenges highlight the need for comprehensive improvement strategies to provide a quality education for all students.

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.
