Montair Elementary

Summary:

Montair Elementary is a public elementary school in Danville, California, serving 503 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the San Ramon Valley Unified school district, which is ranked 69th out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 5-star rating.

Montair Elementary is a high-performing school, consistently ranking in the top 10% of California elementary schools over the past decade. The school's academic performance is exceptional, with students significantly outperforming state averages in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. Montair also has consistently high rankings for various student subgroups, including male students, Hispanic students, and students with disabilities. Additionally, the school maintains a relatively low chronic absenteeism rate, which is significantly lower than the state average.

Compared to other high-performing schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District, such as Alamo Elementary, Golden View Elementary, and John Baldwin Elementary, Montair's academic performance is generally on par or exceeds that of its peers. However, Montair's student population is less diverse, with a higher percentage of White students and lower percentages of Asian and Hispanic students. The school's increasing chronic absenteeism rate, while still relatively low, is an area that warrants further investigation and potential intervention to ensure continued student success.

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.
