Centerville Elementary School

Summary:

Centerville Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-5 in Centerville, Georgia, which is part of the Houston County School District. The school has seen fluctuations in its student racial makeup, with a decrease in white students and an increase in African American students over the past few years.

Centerville Elementary's test scores on the Milestones Assessments have been mixed compared to the Houston County and Georgia averages. In 2022-2023, the school performed below the district and state averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics for all grade levels. However, in 2021-2022, Centerville Elementary outperformed the district and state in English Language Arts for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. The school has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 80.88% to 83.97% over the past three school years, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools like Quail Run Elementary School and Lake Joy Elementary School.

Despite the school's lower test scores, Centerville Elementary has maintained relatively consistent funding and staffing levels, with spending per student and student-teacher ratios that are comparable to or better than the nearby schools. This suggests that factors beyond just funding and staffing may be contributing to the school's performance. Continued analysis and targeted interventions may help the school improve its outcomes and better serve its diverse student population.

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.
