Leroy Anderson Elementary

Summary:

Leroy Anderson Elementary is a public elementary school in San Jose, California, serving 341 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant academic challenges, with lower-than-average performance compared to the district and state.

Leroy Anderson Elementary's academic performance, as measured by the Smarter Balanced Assessments, is significantly lower than the Moreland School District and California state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, the percentage of students proficient or better in English Language Arts ranged from 21.88% to 30.61%, compared to the district average of 62.72% to 66.91% and the state average of 42.96% to 46.69%. The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate of 34%, much higher than the state average, which may be impacting academic performance. Additionally, 84.75% of Leroy Anderson Elementary students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

Compared to nearby schools, Leroy Anderson Elementary's academic performance is significantly lower. For example, Murdock-Portal Elementary and George C. Payne Elementary, both in the Cupertino Union School District, as well as Lynhaven Elementary and Easterbrook Discovery in the Moreland School District, all have much higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. The school's English Language Learner students, however, perform relatively well compared to the school's overall performance, suggesting that the school may be providing effective support and interventions for this population.

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.
