Barton Hill Elementary

Summary:

Barton Hill Elementary is a public elementary school in San Pedro, California, serving 380 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant challenges, including declining academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a student population facing substantial socioeconomic disadvantages.

Barton Hill Elementary has a diverse student population, with a majority Hispanic enrollment (over 80%) and smaller percentages of African American, Asian, and other racial groups. However, the school consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of California elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Its performance on standardized tests, such as the Smarter Balanced Assessments and CAST Science, is significantly lower than the Los Angeles Unified School District and California state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. Additionally, Barton Hill Elementary has experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 14.4% in 2017-2018 to 41.2% in 2022-2023, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools and the district average.

While Barton Hill Elementary struggles academically, some of the nearby schools, such as Point Fermin Elementary and Taper Avenue Elementary, demonstrate significantly higher academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates. Understanding the factors that contribute to the success of these higher-performing schools could provide valuable insights for improving Barton Hill Elementary. Additionally, the high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at Barton Hill Elementary (over 95%) suggests that the school serves a community facing significant socioeconomic challenges, which may require targeted interventions and additional support services to address.

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.
