Lankershim Elementary

Summary:

Lankershim Elementary is a public elementary school in North Hollywood, California, serving 318 students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the Los Angeles Unified School District. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student population and faces significant challenges, including lower academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Lankershim Elementary's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is significantly lower than the state and district averages. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 25.66% of students met or exceeded standards in English Language Arts, and 30.26% met or exceeded standards in Mathematics, well below the state and district averages. The school's chronic absenteeism rate is also high, with 38.9% of students being chronically absent, compared to nearby schools with rates ranging from 18.3% to 34.3%. Additionally, 88.99% of Lankershim Elementary students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, higher than the nearby schools, which have rates ranging from 20% to 95.05%.

Lankershim Elementary's performance has been declining over the years, as evidenced by its decreasing statewide ranking and SchoolDigger star rating. The school ranked 4164 out of 5848 California elementary schools in the 2022-2023 school year, down from a ranking of 2789 out of 5390 in the 2011-2012 school year. The school's performance also varies significantly among different student subgroups, with Hispanic students and English Language Learners struggling academically compared to the overall student population. In contrast, nearby charter schools, such as Colfax Charter Elementary and Citizens of the World Charter School East Valley, have significantly higher academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates.

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.
