Albert Schweitzer Elementary

Summary:

Albert Schweitzer Elementary is a public elementary school in Carmichael, California, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the San Juan Unified School District. The school has a predominantly white student population, but faces challenges with academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a relatively high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

Compared to nearby schools like Cambridge Heights Elementary and Mary Deterding Elementary, Albert Schweitzer Elementary has significantly lower proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics across all grade levels, despite serving a less diverse student population. The school's chronic absenteeism rate of 24.2% is also higher than the state average and nearby high-performing schools.

Over the past several years, Albert Schweitzer Elementary's statewide ranking has steadily declined, and the school's performance data reveals significant disparities between different student subgroups. While the school's white students consistently rank in the bottom quartile of California elementary schools, its Hispanic students perform better, suggesting the need to address the specific needs and challenges faced by different subgroups. By learning from the practices and strategies employed by nearby high-performing schools, Albert Schweitzer Elementary may be able to enhance its educational outcomes and better serve its diverse student 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.
