Newcastle Charter

Summary:

Newcastle Charter is a public charter elementary school serving 285 students in grades K-8 in Newcastle, California, which is part of the highly-ranked Newcastle Elementary District.

Newcastle Charter stands out for its consistently high academic performance, with students outperforming state and local averages in both English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency. For example, in 2022-2023, 82.76% of 7th graders at Newcastle Charter were proficient or better in ELA, compared to 80.49% at the nearby Newcastle Elementary and 47.44% statewide. However, the school has seen a concerning spike in chronic absenteeism, rising from 3.1% in 2018-2019 to 20.6% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the 20.1% rate at Newcastle Elementary.

Another notable aspect of Newcastle Charter is its racial makeup, with a significantly higher percentage of white students (72.98%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 62.94% to 87.6% white students. Additionally, the school has a lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (25.96%) compared to the nearby schools, suggesting it may serve a more affluent student population. These differences in racial and socioeconomic composition warrant further examination to ensure the school is representative of the local community and providing equitable opportunities for all students.

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.
