Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Studies

Summary:

Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Studies is a public elementary school serving 402 students in grades K-5 in the West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles. The school has a strong focus on environmental studies and sustainability, but faces significant challenges in terms of academic performance, attendance, and socioeconomic factors that differentiate it from the surrounding schools.

With over 90% Hispanic students, Carson-Gore Academy has a notably higher minority student population compared to nearby schools like Mid-City's Prescott School of Enriched Sciences, Twenty-Fourth Street Elementary, and Sixth Avenue Elementary. Academically, the school lags behind the surrounding schools and the Los Angeles Unified district and state averages, with only 35.23% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 41.17% for the district and 46.66% for California. The school also struggles with high chronic absenteeism rates, reaching as high as 51.7% in 2021-2022.

Despite its environmental focus, Carson-Gore Academy has consistently ranked in the bottom half of California elementary schools, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. This suggests the school has struggled to improve student outcomes, even as the nearby schools, which also serve predominantly low-income and minority student populations, generally outperform Carson-Gore Academy. Addressing the high chronic absenteeism rate and targeting academic support for underperforming subgroups could be key areas of focus for improvement at the school.

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.
