Glenwood Elementary

Summary:

Glenwood Elementary is a public elementary school in Sun Valley, California, serving 218 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant challenges, with a predominantly Hispanic student population, consistently low academic performance, high rates of chronic absenteeism, and a very high percentage of students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

Glenwood Elementary's academic performance is a major concern, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics that are 20-30 percentage points lower than the Los Angeles Unified and California state averages. The school's statewide ranking and SchoolDigger star rating have been declining over the past decade, and its performance is particularly low for certain student subgroups, such as Hispanic students and English Language Learners. While the nearby schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District also face academic and socioeconomic challenges, Glenwood Elementary consistently ranks lower than these schools on key metrics.

The high rates of chronic absenteeism, reaching as high as 49.8% in the 2021-2022 school year, and the school's socioeconomic challenges may be contributing factors to the low academic performance at Glenwood Elementary. Addressing these underlying issues could be crucial in improving the school's overall outcomes. Compared to nearby schools like Camellia Avenue Elementary, George Washington Elementary, and Providencia Elementary, Glenwood Elementary faces unique challenges that require targeted interventions and support to address the needs of its student community.

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.
