Alta Loma Elementary has a highly diverse student population, with a significant Hispanic majority (84.79%) and smaller percentages of African American (10.05%) and students of two or more races (2.06%). However, the school's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is generally lower than the district and state averages, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science all falling below the district and state levels. Additionally, Alta Loma Elementary has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 12.6% in 2017-2018 to 35.7% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the nearby schools.

While Alta Loma Elementary shares some similarities with the nearby schools, such as Queen Anne Place Elementary, which is less than a mile away, it stands out in several key areas. For example, Queen Anne Place Elementary outperforms Alta Loma Elementary in both English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency by a significant margin. Additionally, the data reveals that the school's Hispanic students and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds perform better relative to their peers statewide compared to the school's overall performance, suggesting that with the right strategies and support, Alta Loma Elementary has the potential to improve its academic 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.
