Bement CUSD 5


The Bement CUSD 5 school district in Illinois consists of three schools: Bement Elementary School, Bement High School, and Bement Middle School. The district serves a population with relatively low socioeconomic status, as evidenced by the high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch across all three schools.

Among the three schools, Bement Middle School stands out as the top performer, consistently ranking among the top 20% of Illinois middle schools and earning high ratings from SchoolDigger. The school's academic performance is particularly impressive, with significantly higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to the state averages. In contrast, Bement High School and Bement Elementary School struggle with academic performance, with proficiency rates well below the state averages.

Attendance and engagement challenges are also a concern, particularly at Bement High School, which has a concerning chronic absenteeism rate of 41.9%. This may be contributing to the school's lower graduation rate and higher dropout rate compared to the state averages. The district's leadership will need to address these issues and ensure equitable resource allocation to improve academic outcomes across all three schools.
