Point Vicente Elementary

Summary:

Point Vicente Elementary is a public elementary school serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade in the affluent community of Rancho Palos Verdes, California. The school is part of the highly-ranked Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District, which is rated 5 out of 5 stars by SchoolDigger.

Point Vicente Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in California, with students performing exceptionally well on standardized tests. In the 2022-2023 school year, 72.73% of Point Vicente students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 81.83% for the district and 46.66% for the state. In Mathematics, 74.25% of Point Vicente students were proficient or better, compared to 74.8% for the district and 34.62% for the state. The school's diverse student population includes a mix of White (32.02%), Asian (33.15%), Hispanic (16.01%), and students of two or more races (16.29%). However, Point Vicente's academic performance, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics, is slightly lower than some of the top-performing schools in the district, such as Rancho Vista Elementary, Cornerstone at Pedregal Elementary, and Soleado Elementary.

While Point Vicente Elementary's overall performance is strong, the school has experienced an increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 5.4% in the 2018-2019 school year to 18.6% in the 2022-2023 school year. This trend is worth monitoring, as high chronic absenteeism can negatively impact student learning and academic achievement. Additionally, the school's ranking for Asian and White students is slightly lower compared to other subgroups, suggesting that there may be room for improvement in addressing the needs of these student populations.

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.
