Carver Elementary

Summary:

Carver Elementary is a public elementary school in Long Beach, California, serving 499 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. This high-performing school consistently outshines the district and state averages in academic assessments, making it a standout choice for families in the area.

Carver Elementary's academic excellence is evident in its strong performance on Smarter Balanced Assessments. In the 2022-2023 school year, 70.76% of Carver students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 48.15% for the Long Beach Unified district and 46.66% for the state of California. In Mathematics, 67.8% of Carver students were proficient or better, far surpassing the district's 34.46% and the state's 34.62%. The school's excellence extends to Science as well, with 53.25% of students proficient or better on the CAST assessment, outperforming the district's 25.94% and the state's 30.18%.

Carver Elementary's academic prowess is further reflected in its statewide ranking, placing it in the top 15% of California elementary schools. With a ranking of 715 out of 5,848 schools and a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger, Carver stands out as a beacon of educational excellence. The school's diverse student population, with a higher percentage of White and Asian students compared to nearby Gant Elementary and Twain Elementary, may contribute to its strong academic performance. However, the school's recent increase in chronic absenteeism, from 3.4% in 2020-2021 to 23.3% in 2022-2023, is a concern that the school should address to maintain its high standards.

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.
