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.

Open Quote Our daughter goes to prisk and has now for a few years now. 2 out of the 3 teachers were very nice and helpful and seemed like they actually cared about the children. We have known our daughter needed extra help but has been displaying signs of dislexia and ADD, so we requested an IEP evaluation. I reached out to the principal and other staff members multiple times and pretty much was either misled or completely ignored. Months go by, before they basically tell us they forgot her. Having school professionals telling you they forgot about your child is upsetting to put it politely. That aside the tutoring programs there are extremely scarce and they are very selective about who can get it. When we were elected for tutoring, they cut it short weeks early due to "funding". The school psychologist is only there twice a week due to having to report to 2 other schools as well as prisk. Long beach unified has been an absolute nightmare. The teachers for the most part just don't have the tools they need to do their job to the best of their ability. Close Quote

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.
