Jackson Elementary School

Summary:

Jackson Elementary School is a public elementary school in Roswell, Georgia, serving 545 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Fulton County School District, which is ranked 70 out of 201 districts in Georgia and has a 3-star rating.

Despite relatively high per-student spending and a low student-teacher ratio, Jackson Elementary consistently underperforms compared to the Fulton County and Georgia state averages on standardized tests. In 2022-2023, only 18.6% of 5th-grade students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 55.9% in Fulton County and 41.6% statewide. The school has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (51.01%) than surrounding schools, and a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (62.59% to 65.5%).

The contrast in performance between Jackson Elementary and nearby higher-achieving schools, such as Roswell North Elementary and River Eves Elementary, suggests that factors beyond just funding and staffing may be contributing to Jackson Elementary's challenges. Further investigation into the school's instructional practices, curriculum, and support systems for students may be warranted to identify opportunities for improvement.

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.
