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.

Open Quote Sad at Covid19: Hi all, I am saddened by how Cherry Chase Elementary School in Sunnyvale has no real tangible plan to teach our children during this crisis. A bunch of checklists, 1 hour of zoom per week, and online office hours is not teaching. In times of crisis, we need our teachers to be at their best and not be satisfied with just doing the minimum. My wife and I both work in health care. Everyday we have to choose to help either our community or our children. I was hoping that our children's teachers would be able to provide the education for our kids to learn and grow from and I wouldn't have to choose between community and family. I plead with Cherry Chase Elementary and Gloria Marchant to do the right thing by our children. Cherry Chase and their teachers will be judged by how they supported their children during Covid19 and not by past accolades. Close Quote

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.
