Westfield Village Elementary

Summary:

Westfield Village Elementary is a public K-8 school in West Sacramento, California, serving a student population of 470. The school is part of the Washington Unified School District, which has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Westfield Village Elementary faces significant challenges. The school has a much higher percentage of Hispanic students (67.02%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 32.28% to 60.06% Hispanic. Academically, Westfield Village consistently ranks in the bottom 5% of California elementary schools, with performance on standardized tests well below district and state averages. The school has also experienced a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 20.3% in 2018-2019 to 42.1% in 2022-2023, much higher than the 16.9% to 37.2% range of nearby schools. Additionally, Westfield Village has an extremely high percentage of students (94.89%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage.

Compared to nearby schools, Westfield Village's performance lags significantly. For example, Stonegate Elementary, located just 2.34 miles away, outperforms Westfield Village across all academic measures and has a much lower chronic absenteeism rate. The high rates of poverty, English Language Learners, and chronic absenteeism at Westfield Village may be contributing to the school's poor academic outcomes, and targeted interventions and support services could potentially help improve student achievement.

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.
