G N Dieterich Elementary School

Summary:

G N Dieterich Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 485 students in grades PK-5 in Aurora, Illinois, which is part of the Aurora East Unified School District 131.

G N Dieterich Elementary School stands out for its significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (88.25%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 54.9% to 96.93% Hispanic students. However, the school consistently ranks in the bottom 20% of Illinois elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Its proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics are significantly lower than the state and district averages, often by 20 percentage points or more. Additionally, the school has a high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 12.5% to 16.4% over the past few years, which is higher than the surrounding schools, such as W S Beaupre Elementary School and Olney C Allen Elementary School.

The high percentage of students (74.02%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch at G N Dieterich indicates a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population, which may be contributing to the school's low performance. The school's consistently low rankings and performance compared to the state and district averages suggest that targeted interventions and support may be needed to improve student outcomes at G N Dieterich Elementary School.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

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.
