Lincoln Elementary School

Summary:

Lincoln Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Rexburg, Idaho, serving grades K-4 with a student population of 394. It is part of the Madison School District, which is ranked 34 out of 56 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Lincoln Elementary consistently outperforms the Madison District and the state of Idaho in math and English Language Arts (ELA) proficiency rates across all grades. For example, in 2022-2023, 54.2% of Lincoln students were proficient or better in ISAT Math, compared to 38.3% for the district and 41.5% for the state. However, Lincoln's statewide ranking has declined in recent years, dropping to 104th out of 252 schools in 2022-2023, though it still maintains a 3-star rating. Lincoln Elementary also has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with a higher percentage of Hispanic and Asian students.

Despite its academic strengths, Lincoln Elementary faces some challenges. The school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 27.0% in 2021-2022 to 24.9% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the nearby Adams Elementary and Teton Elementary schools. Additionally, Lincoln Elementary has a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at 35.53% in 2022-2023, and its per-student spending of $6,524 in 2018-2019 is lower than the nearby schools. By addressing these areas of concern and learning from the successes of neighboring high-performing schools, Lincoln Elementary has the potential to regain its position as one of the top-ranked elementary schools in Idaho.

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.
