School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens

Summary:

School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens is a public elementary school serving grades PK-8 in Washington, DC, with a diverse student population and a strong academic track record, consistently ranking among the top elementary schools in the district.

The school has maintained a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger and consistently outperforms the District of Columbia Public Schools and the overall District of Columbia on standardized tests, with significantly higher percentages of students proficient or better in PARCC Mathematics and English Language Arts across all grade levels. The school's performance is particularly strong for certain student subgroups, such as African American and special education students, ranking 14th out of 60 DC elementary schools for African American students and 8th out of 45 schools for special education students in the 2022-2023 school year. Additionally, the school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio and higher per-student spending compared to many nearby schools, such as Garrison Elementary School and Bruce-Monroe Elementary School at Park View.

While School Without Walls at Francis-Stevens has consistently maintained a strong academic performance and high ranking among DC elementary schools, the lower ranking for White students (16th out of 25 DC elementary schools) compared to other subgroups may indicate potential equity issues that warrant further investigation. The school's proximity to several other high-performing elementary schools in the area, such as H.D. Cooke Elementary School and Seaton Elementary School, may also contribute to the competitive academic environment in the surrounding area.

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.
