Main Avenue Elementary

Summary:

Main Avenue Elementary is a public elementary school in Sacramento, California, serving students from kindergarten to 6th grade as part of the Robla Elementary School District. The school has seen a fluctuating student racial makeup, with the current population being 11.54% White, 21.43% African American, 44.78% Hispanic, and 19.23% Asian.

Despite being part of the Robla Elementary School District, which is ranked 1245 out of 1560 districts in California, Main Avenue Elementary has struggled in recent years. The school's statewide ranking has declined from 2691 out of 5789 California elementary schools in 2018-2019 to 4507 out of 5848 in the 2022-2023 school year. Its SchoolDigger rating has also dropped from 3 stars out of 5 to just 1 star out of 5. This decline is largely due to the school's high chronic absenteeism rate, which has risen from 12.9% in 2018-2019 to 66.8% in the current school year, as well as consistently low proficiency rates on Smarter Balanced Assessments in both English Language Arts and Mathematics across all grade levels.

When compared to other nearby schools within the Robla Elementary District, such as Glenwood Elementary and Bell Avenue Elementary, the performance gap at Main Avenue Elementary is evident. While these nearby schools also struggle with low test scores and high chronic absenteeism rates, they generally outperform Main Avenue Elementary across various metrics. This disparity is likely due to the high concentration of students from low-income families at Main Avenue Elementary, with 81.59% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch in the 2022-2023 school year.

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.
