W S Beaupre Elementary School

Summary:

W S Beaupre Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 199 students in grades PK-5 in Aurora, Illinois, which is part of the Aurora East Unified School District 131. This school stands out from its peers due to its significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students, consistently low academic performance, and concerning trends in student attendance.

W S Beaupre Elementary has a student population that is 94.47% Hispanic, which is notably higher than the surrounding schools in the district, which range from 63.91% to 97.68% Hispanic students. Academically, the school consistently ranks in the bottom 20% of Illinois elementary schools, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics that are significantly lower than state and district averages, often by 20 percentage points or more. For example, in 3rd grade English Language Arts, W S Beaupre's proficiency rate was 10.5% compared to 1.9% to 24% at nearby schools like C M Bardwell Elementary School and C I Johnson Elementary School.

Another key concern is the sharp increase in chronic absenteeism at W S Beaupre, rising from 2.1% in 2019-2020 to 23.6% in 2022-2023. This trend is particularly troubling, as it may be contributing to the school's poor academic performance. Additionally, the school's high per-student spending of $25,643 in 2022-2023, compared to $15,806 to $20,792 at nearby schools, does not appear to be translating into improved outcomes for students. Addressing the chronic absenteeism issue and ensuring the effective use of resources should be top priorities for W S Beaupre Elementary and the Aurora East Unified School District 131.

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.
