WD Robbins Elementary School

Summary:

WD Robbins Elementary School is a public elementary school in Prichard, Alabama, serving 295 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Mobile County School District, which is ranked 93 out of 134 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

WD Robbins Elementary School faces significant academic challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom half of Alabama elementary schools over the past 10 years. The school's performance on state assessments is significantly below the state and county averages across all grade levels and subject areas, with proficiency rates ranging from 7.5% to 26.09% in Mathematics and 27.5% to 53.66% in English Language Arts, compared to state averages of 33.92% to 43.61% and 53.43% to 55.87%, respectively. The school also has a very high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 86.78% to 88.72%, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Comparison to nearby schools, such as Old Shell Road Magnet School, CollinsRhodes Elementary School, and Forest Hill Elementary School, reveals that these schools have significantly higher academic performance on state assessments and lower percentages of students from low-income families. This suggests that the challenges faced by WD Robbins Elementary School are not solely a reflection of the local community, and that targeted interventions and additional resources may be necessary to improve academic outcomes and close the achievement gap.

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.
