Veterans Elementary consistently performs significantly below the Bibb County and Georgia state averages on standardized tests, with only 13.8% of 3rd-grade students proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 22.7% in Bibb County and 38.6% statewide. The school has been ranked among the lowest-performing elementary schools in Georgia, consistently in the bottom 10% of schools statewide. However, the school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio and higher spending per student than some nearby schools, such as Vineville Academy and Alexander II Magnet School, which significantly outperform Veterans on state assessments.

The racial makeup of Veterans Elementary is predominantly African American, at around 80%, with Hispanic students making up the next largest group at around 14%. All of the schools in the Bibb County district, including Veterans, have a high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating that the district serves a predominantly low-income population. Addressing the underlying factors contributing to the school's poor performance, such as instructional quality, curriculum, and student support services, will be crucial in order to improve student learning and achievement at Veterans Elementary.

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.
