Best Public Schools in Leesburg, IN


Summary:

The city of Leesburg, Indiana is home to a single public elementary school, Leesburg Elementary School, which serves grades PK-6 and is part of the Warsaw Community Schools district. While the school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio, its academic performance, as measured by ILEARN test scores, is generally below the district and state averages across multiple subject areas and grade levels.

Leesburg Elementary School faces several challenges, including declining performance over the past few years, with its statewide ranking dropping from 486 out of 1,016 Indiana elementary schools in 2020-2021 to 603 out of 1,016 in 2022-2023. The school also has a high percentage of students (56.32%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a relatively low-income student population, and a concerning chronic absenteeism rate of 8.2%, which may impact student learning and achievement.

Despite its diverse student population, with a significant Hispanic representation (29.31%) and smaller percentages of other racial groups, Leesburg Elementary School's academic performance lags behind the Warsaw Community Schools district and the state of Indiana averages. The school's relatively low spending per student ($8,709 in 2021-2022) suggests that resource allocation may be a factor in its underperformance, and further investigation is needed to understand and address the school's challenges.
