Anthony Spangler Elementary

Summary:

Anthony Spangler Elementary is a public elementary school in Milpitas, California, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade as part of the Milpitas Unified School District. The school has a diverse student population, with a majority of Asian students and a growing Hispanic population.

Anthony Spangler Elementary is a high-performing school, consistently scoring above the state average on standardized tests in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. The school's English Language Learners also perform exceptionally well, ranking in the top 15% of California elementary schools. However, the school's Hispanic students have struggled compared to their Asian peers, highlighting an achievement gap that the school may need to address. While Anthony Spangler outperforms many nearby schools in the Milpitas Unified district, it lags behind the top-performing schools, such as Mabel Mattos Elementary and Curtner Elementary.

This may be a factor in the school's ability to address the achievement gap between its Asian and Hispanic students. Overall, Anthony Spangler Elementary is a strong-performing school, but there are opportunities for improvement, particularly in supporting its diverse student population and addressing any disparities in academic achievement.

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.
