Lockheed Elementary School

Summary:

Lockheed Elementary School is a public elementary school in Marietta, Georgia, serving 736 students in grades K-5. The school is part of the Marietta City School District, which is ranked 82 out of 201 districts in Georgia and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Lockheed Elementary stands out for several key reasons. It has a significantly higher percentage of minority students compared to nearby schools, with 38.59% African American and 50.82% Hispanic students. Academically, Lockheed consistently underperforms the Marietta City and Georgia state averages on standardized tests, with only 12.6% of 3rd graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 48.4% in Marietta City and 38.6% statewide. The school has been ranked in the bottom half of Georgia elementary schools for several years and maintains a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger, the lowest possible. Additionally, Lockheed has an extremely high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 76.87% to 85.33% over the past few years.

These challenges at Lockheed Elementary stand in stark contrast to the higher-performing nearby schools, such as West Side Elementary, which had 81.9% of 3rd graders proficient or better in ELA. The racial and socioeconomic disparities at Lockheed raise concerns about equitable access to educational opportunities and resources, and the school's high per-student spending compared to some higher-performing schools suggests the need for a closer examination of how resources are being allocated and utilized to support student learning.

Open Quote EVERY BODY IS SO NICE AND HELPFULL MY KIDS LOVE THERE SCHOOL Close Quote


by a teacher
Monday, May 21, 2012

Open Quote I have been a teacher for over 20 years and all I can say is, this is not a place to send your child. Marietta city schools are corrupt and everyone will protect one another to ensure their positions. They do not have the best interest of the youth at heart. I would choose my location of residency very wisely! Close Quote

Open Quote My son has attended Lockheed for two years and has been fortunate enough to have the same teacher for both kindergarten and first grade. His teacher has been nothing short of amazing. She is so patient and understanding with him. He is a very smart child, but gets bored and loses focus when he is not challenged. She understands this about him and finds different ways to challenge him everyday. Because of this, he is now doing 2nd and 3rd grade work! He also attends speech therapy in the school. His therapist has helped to improve his speech a hundred times better than what it was prior. The principal and staff are great people and really seem to have the children's best interest at heart.

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.
