Kilpatrick Elementary School

Summary:

Kilpatrick Elementary School is a public elementary school in Jonesboro, Georgia, serving 618 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Clayton County School District, which is ranked 170 out of 201 districts in Georgia and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Kilpatrick Elementary has consistently been ranked in the bottom quarter of Georgia elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years. The school has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic and African American students (92.56%) compared to the state average, and an extremely high percentage of students (over 90%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage. Kilpatrick Elementary's test scores are consistently well below the state and county averages across all grade levels and subject areas, with only 17.7% of 3rd graders proficient or better in ELA, compared to the state average of 38.6%. The school's per-student spending has also been lower than the state average and some of the nearby schools, such as Arnold Elementary.

While many of the nearby schools in the Clayton County district also serve predominantly minority and economically disadvantaged populations, some, like Arnold Elementary, are able to achieve significantly higher test scores and overall performance. This suggests that factors beyond just student demographics, such as school leadership, teaching quality, and resource allocation, play a crucial role in student outcomes. Addressing the persistent challenges at Kilpatrick Elementary will require a comprehensive, data-driven approach that targets the root causes of the school's underperformance and provides the necessary support and interventions to help all students succeed.

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.
