Mattie Lou Maxwell

Summary:

Mattie Lou Maxwell is an elementary school in Anaheim, California, serving 594 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school faces several challenges, including lower academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds compared to both the Magnolia Elementary District and the state of California.

Academically, Mattie Lou Maxwell's proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science are significantly lower than the district and state averages. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, only 24.29% to 37.14% of students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the district's 45.12% to 51.49% and the state's 42.96% to 46.66%. The school's chronic absenteeism rate has also risen dramatically, from 9.5% in 2018-2019 to 29.7% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the state average. Additionally, 85.35% of Mattie Lou Maxwell's students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

Compared to nearby schools within the Magnolia Elementary District, such as Dr. Albert Schweitzer Leadership Academy, Walt Disney, and Dr. Peter Marshall, Mattie Lou Maxwell's academic performance and chronic absenteeism rates are generally lower, and the school has a higher percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. These findings suggest the need for targeted interventions and support to address the school's areas of concern and improve student 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.
