Bing Wong Elementary

Summary:

Bing Wong Elementary is a public elementary school in San Bernardino, California, serving 625 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school faces significant challenges, with a student population that is predominantly Hispanic (83.2%), high rates of economic disadvantage (92.96% receive free or reduced-price lunch), and consistently low academic performance that ranks in the bottom 10% of California elementary schools.

Bing Wong Elementary's academic struggles are evident across all grade levels and subject areas, with proficiency rates ranging from just 11.96% to 28.92% in English Language Arts and 10.12% to 28.68% in Mathematics. The school's performance is particularly low for certain student subgroups, such as English Language Learners, Special Education students, and those from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, who rank in the bottom 10-20% of California schools in these categories. Additionally, Bing Wong Elementary has experienced a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 18.0% in 2017-2018 to 39.4% in 2022-2023, which may be a contributing factor to the school's poor academic outcomes.

While Bing Wong Elementary struggles, some nearby schools, such as Savant Preparatory Academy of Business and Ballington Academy for the Arts and Sciences, perform significantly better on standardized tests, with proficiency rates exceeding the state averages in both English Language Arts and Mathematics. These high-performing schools also have a more diverse student population, with a higher percentage of African American students compared to Bing Wong Elementary's predominantly Hispanic student body. Addressing the challenges at Bing Wong Elementary and learning from the successes of nearby schools could be crucial for improving the educational outcomes for the 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.
