Sanislo Elementary School

Summary:

Sanislo Elementary School is a public elementary school in Seattle, Washington, serving 173 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the Seattle School District No. 1, which is ranked 42 out of 249 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating.

Despite being part of a highly-ranked district, Sanislo Elementary consistently ranks in the bottom 20% of Washington elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Math, and Science are significantly lower than the district and state averages. Sanislo has a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of minority students (79.77%) compared to nearby schools, including a significant population of African American (18.5%) and Hispanic (23.12%) students. Additionally, 65.32% of Sanislo's students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high poverty rate.

Compared to nearby high-performing schools like Pathfinder K-8 School, Fairmount Park Elementary School, and Gatewood Elementary School, Sanislo's academic performance is significantly lower, with large achievement gaps for various student subgroups. The school's inconsistent ranking and rating over the years suggest that it faces ongoing challenges in supporting its English Language Learner and low-income student populations, which are performing well below their peers in the district and state.

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.
