Park Avenue Elementary

Summary:

Park Avenue Elementary is a public elementary school in Yuba City, California, serving 539 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant challenges, with a predominantly Hispanic student population and high rates of poverty and chronic absenteeism.

Park Avenue Elementary consistently underperforms compared to the Yuba City Unified School District and the state of California on standardized tests. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 13.36% of Park Avenue students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 39.47% for the district and 46.66% for the state. The school's performance has been declining over the years, with its statewide ranking dropping from 4,235 out of 5,662 California elementary schools in 2017-2018 to 5,525 out of 5,848 in 2022-2023.

While Park Avenue Elementary struggles academically, some nearby schools within the same district, such as Riverbend Elementary and King Avenue Elementary, perform significantly better on state assessments. This suggests that factors beyond just the district may be contributing to the challenges at Park Avenue. The high rates of poverty, as indicated by the 96.47% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, and the chronic absenteeism issues at the school may be key factors in its academic struggles.

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.
