Marie Schaefer has a more diverse student population compared to some nearby schools, with a racial makeup of 61.84% White, 22.9% African American, 4.21% Hispanic, and 3.27% Asian. Academically, the school's performance is generally on par with or slightly below the district and state averages, with 41.7% of 3rd graders proficient or better in ELA and 46.3% in math. However, the school has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 2.4% in 2019-2020 to 12.2% in 2022-2023, which is higher than nearby Estelle Kampmeyer Elementary (10.8%) and Delores Moye Elementary (12.8%).

The school also has a higher percentage of special education students and low-income students compared to some nearby schools. While the overall academic performance is solid, there appear to be significant achievement gaps between racial subgroups, which the school and district should address. The proximity of Marie Schaefer to several other elementary schools in the O'Fallon area may present opportunities for collaboration and resource-sharing.

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.
