Summary:

Lincoln Grade School is an elementary school located in Washington, Illinois, serving grades PK-4 with a total enrollment of 484 students. The school is part of the East Peoria School District 86, which is ranked 219 out of 823 districts in Illinois and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Lincoln Grade School stands out for its consistently strong academic performance, with 3rd and 4th-grade students outperforming the state average in both English Language Arts and Mathematics. For example, in 2022-2023, 44% of 4th-grade students at Lincoln Grade School were proficient or better in ELA, compared to the state average of 35.4%. The school also has relatively low chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 2.1% to 11.3% over the past few years, which is lower than the surrounding schools like Woodrow Wilson Elementary School and P L Bolin Elementary School. Additionally, Lincoln Grade School has a lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (30.58%) compared to the nearby schools, which range from 17.29% to 61.51%.

However, one notable aspect of Lincoln Grade School is its significantly higher percentage of white students (90.29%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 79.26% to 92.26% white students. This lack of racial diversity may be an area that warrants further examination and consideration by the school and district. Despite this, Lincoln Grade School appears to be a high-performing elementary school within the East Peoria School District 86, with strong academic outcomes, low chronic absenteeism, and a relatively affluent student population.

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.
