Ladd Lane Elementary

Summary:

Ladd Lane Elementary is a public elementary school in Hollister, California, serving 776 students from kindergarten to 7th grade. The school faces several challenges, including a high percentage of Hispanic students, fluctuating chronic absenteeism rates, and lower-than-average test scores in English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to the state and surrounding schools.

One key insight is that Ladd Lane Elementary's performance varies significantly among different student subgroups. The school ranks highly for English Language Learner students and Disabled students, but lower for White students and Low Socioeconomic Status students. Interestingly, while Ladd Lane's performance is generally lower than the state averages, it performs better than some nearby schools, such as R.O. Hardin Elementary and Calaveras Elementary, which have even lower test scores and higher chronic absenteeism rates. One nearby school, Hollister Dual Language Academy, stands out with its strong performance in both English Language Arts and Mathematics, often outperforming the state averages, suggesting that a dual language program could be a successful model for Ladd Lane Elementary.

The high percentage of free and reduced-price lunch recipients at Ladd Lane Elementary (45.1%) and the surrounding schools (ranging from 39.07% to 73.52%) indicates that the student population faces significant socioeconomic challenges, which may contribute to the lower academic performance. However, the school's strong performance for certain subgroups suggests that it has the potential to improve overall academic outcomes with targeted interventions and support, particularly in the context of the Hollister school district, which is ranked 967 out of 1,560 districts in California and has a 2-star rating out of 5 from SchoolDigger.

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.
