Freedom Academy stands out for its unique student population, with a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (76.67%) compared to the state average of California (54.8%). The school also outperforms the Imperial County Office of Education and the state of California in the percentage of students proficient or better in Smarter Balanced Assessments/English Language Arts/Literacy (60% vs. 51.69% and 46.66% respectively) and CAST/Science (41.67% vs. 26.32% and 30.18% respectively). However, the school underperforms in Smarter Balanced Assessments/Mathematics (20% vs. 36.79% and 34.62% respectively).

Compared to nearby alternative schools, such as Imperial County Juvenile Hall/Community and Imperial County Special Education, Freedom Academy has a higher percentage of white students and a lower percentage of Hispanic students. Additionally, the school's test scores in English Language Arts and Science are significantly higher than the nearby alternative schools. However, the school faces challenges in addressing chronic absenteeism, which has fluctuated from 0% in 2020-2021 to 18% in 2021-2022 and 11.9% in 2022-2023, higher than the state average of 9.8%. The school's focus on personalized learning, with a low student-teacher ratio, may be a contributing factor to its academic strengths, but the high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch suggests the school serves a population with significant socioeconomic challenges.

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.
