Phoenix

Summary:

Phoenix is an alternative public school located in Camarillo, California, serving grades K-12 with a total enrollment of 81 students. The school is part of the Ventura County Office of Education district and has a diverse student population, with 29.63% White, 3.7% African American, 59.26% Hispanic, and 4.94% two or more races.

Phoenix has faced significant challenges in providing consistent and effective educational outcomes for its students. The school has seen wide fluctuations in its four-year graduation rates, ranging from a low of 27.3% in 2019-2020 to a high of 75.0% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the more stable graduation rates of nearby schools like Providence and Ventura County Special Education. Correspondingly, Phoenix has also experienced high dropout rates, ranging from 5.6% to 72.7% over the past few years, which is significantly higher than the dropout rates of the surrounding schools.

Additionally, Phoenix has consistently high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 47.3% to 67.3% over the past few years, substantially higher than the chronic absenteeism rates of the nearby schools, which generally range from 2.9% to 55.9%. The school's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is also significantly lower than the Ventura County Office of Education and California state averages. For example, in 2022-2023, only 8.33% of 11th-grade students at Phoenix were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to 7.27% for the district and 55.41% for the state. These challenges suggest that Phoenix may benefit from targeted interventions and support services to address the unique needs of its student population, which has a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 48.15% to 63.04% over the past few years.

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.
