Los Amigos Elementary

Summary:

Los Amigos Elementary is a public elementary school in Rancho Cucamonga, California, serving 574 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant challenges, with consistently low academic performance, high rates of chronic absenteeism, and a student population that is predominantly Hispanic and economically disadvantaged.

Compared to nearby schools, Los Amigos Elementary has a much higher percentage of Hispanic students (79.97%) and a lower percentage of White students (4.18%). The school's academic performance is also significantly below state and district averages, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics at just 28.01% and 15.68%, respectively, in the 2022-2023 school year. This is in stark contrast to Edison Elementary, located just 1.6 miles away, which has proficiency rates ranging from 60% to 88%. Los Amigos Elementary's chronic absenteeism rate has also risen sharply, from 8.1% in 2018-2019 to 27.7% in 2022-2023, higher than the surrounding schools.

While Los Amigos Elementary's English Language Learners and Special Education students perform relatively better, ranking in the top 40% and top 50% of California schools in these subgroups, the school's Hispanic and Low Socioeconomic Status students perform in the bottom 20% of the state. Over the past decade, the school's statewide ranking has steadily declined, from the top 55% of California elementary schools in 2011-2012 to the bottom 16% in 2022-2023, suggesting the need for targeted interventions and support to improve student outcomes.

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.
