West Fannin Elementary School

Summary:

West Fannin Elementary School is a public elementary school in Blue Ridge, Georgia, serving 439 students in grades PK-5 as part of the Fannin County School District. While the school has some strengths, such as math proficiency rates close to or above state averages, it faces challenges in areas like English Language Arts test scores and a declining statewide ranking.

One key difference between West Fannin Elementary and nearby schools like Mountain View Elementary and Ellijay Elementary is the racial makeup of the student population. West Fannin has a significantly higher percentage of white students (87.47%) compared to these more diverse schools. Additionally, West Fannin's test scores in English Language Arts lag behind state averages, while its math proficiency is closer to or above state levels.

West Fannin Elementary also has a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (60.59%), higher than nearby East Fannin Elementary and Blue Ridge Elementary. Additionally, the school's spending per student is lower than these higher-performing nearby schools, which could suggest potential funding disparities that may be impacting the school's resources and ability to support student learning.

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.
