Glen Oaks Elementary School

Summary:

Glen Oaks Elementary School is a public elementary school in Fairfield, Alabama, serving 324 students in grades 3-5. The school has a predominantly African American student population, with over 95% of students identifying as African American.

Despite being in the same district as nearby Robinson Primary School, Glen Oaks Elementary has consistently ranked in the bottom quartile of Alabama elementary schools, with significantly lower academic performance than the state and district averages. The school's high percentage of students from low-income families, around 70% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, suggests it may be facing challenges related to poverty and its associated barriers to educational success.

The school's racial composition, with over 95% of students identifying as African American, is significantly higher than the more diverse racial makeup of surrounding schools. This indicates that Glen Oaks Elementary may be experiencing racial segregation, potentially due to factors such as residential segregation or school zoning policies. Additionally, the school has had a fluctuating student-teacher ratio, ranging from 17.8 to 47 students per teacher, which could be impacting the quality of instruction and student learning.

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.
