Madrid Elementary School has a strong academic track record, with students scoring well above the state average on the ISASP (Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress) tests. For example, in 2022-2023, the school's 5th-grade students scored 80.8% proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 68.3%. The school also benefits from a relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 10.9 to 12.5 students per teacher over the past three years, which is lower than many nearby schools.

When compared to nearby schools, such as those in the Ames Community School District and the United Community School District, Madrid Elementary School stands out with its higher test scores and lower student-teacher ratios. These factors, along with the school's relatively low free and reduced lunch rates, may contribute to its strong academic performance and consistent ranking among the top elementary schools in Iowa.

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.
