Roxbury School

Summary:

Roxbury School is an elementary school in Stamford, Connecticut, serving 562 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. It is part of the Stamford School District, which is ranked 122 out of 151 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Roxbury School has a diverse student population, with a majority of Hispanic students (54.8% in 2022-2023).

Roxbury School faces significant challenges in academic performance, with consistently lower proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to the Stamford School District and Connecticut state averages across all grade levels. For example, in 2022-2023, only 30.4% of 3rd-grade students at Roxbury School were proficient or better in ELA, compared to 32.3% in the district and 45.5% statewide. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Connecticut elementary schools, with a 1 or 2-star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating below-average performance. Additionally, Roxbury School's performance on student subgroups, such as female, male, white, and low socioeconomic status students, is also concerning, with the school ranking in the bottom half or quarter of Connecticut elementary schools for these groups.

When comparing Roxbury School to other nearby schools in the Stamford School District, it generally performs worse academically. For example, Strawberry Hill an ext. of Rogers International and Westover School both outperform Roxbury School in ELA and Mathematics proficiency rates across multiple grade levels. These significant achievement gaps and the lower performance of student subgroups at Roxbury School suggest potential equity issues within the district, which may require further investigation and targeted interventions to address.

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.
