Glencoe Elementary School

Summary:

Glencoe Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 390 students in grades PK-4 in Glencoe, Alabama, which is part of the Etowah County school district. The school consistently performs above the county and state averages on standardized tests, with 73.13% of 3rd graders and 75.34% of 4th graders proficient or better in English in 2022-2023, compared to 61.66% and 65.08% for Etowah County, and 53.43% and 54.22% for the state.

Despite having a relatively high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 60.26% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, Glencoe Elementary is outperforming the state and county averages. This suggests the school is effectively supporting and meeting the needs of its economically disadvantaged students. However, the school has a less diverse student population compared to the state and some nearby schools, with 85.9% of students being White, 3.08% African American, and 5.64% Hispanic.

When comparing Glencoe Elementary to other schools in the Etowah County district, it stands out as a high-performing school, particularly in terms of academic achievement. However, some nearby schools in the Gadsden City district, such as Eura Brown Elementary, demonstrate even stronger academic results, suggesting there may be opportunities for Glencoe to learn from their practices.

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.
