Elementary Schools in Wabash City Schools


The Wabash City Schools district in Indiana is home to two elementary schools: O.J. Neighbours Elementary School and LH Carpenter Early Learning Center. While both schools serve a predominantly white student population, they face significant challenges in terms of academic performance, attendance, and socioeconomic factors.

O.J. Neighbours Elementary School has 391 students and struggles with below-average ILEARN proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math compared to the district and state. The school also has a chronic absenteeism rate of 13.8% and a high percentage (57.29%) of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. In contrast, LH Carpenter Early Learning Center, with 224 students, has an even higher chronic absenteeism rate of 19.8% and a larger proportion (68.75%) of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. However, the lack of reported ILEARN data for LH Carpenter makes it difficult to assess its academic performance, as it only serves pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students.

Despite the differences in student enrollment and spending per student (O.J. Neighbours at $12,454 and LH Carpenter at $4,548), both schools appear to be struggling academically and facing significant socioeconomic challenges. The district may benefit from a closer examination of the root causes behind these issues and the implementation of targeted interventions to support student success and ensure equity across all schools in the Wabash City Schools district.
