Mount Healthy Elementary School

Summary:

Mount Healthy Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 402 students in grades PK-6 in Columbus, Indiana, which is part of the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation district.

While Mount Healthy Elementary has a predominantly white student population (84.08%), the school has struggled academically in recent years, ranking in the bottom half of Indiana elementary schools and receiving a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's test scores are consistently lower than the district and state averages across all subject areas and grade levels, with only 26.69% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 40.38% for the district and 39.7% for the state. Mount Healthy Elementary also has a relatively high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 8.2% to 9.3% over the past three school years, and a growing population of economically disadvantaged students, with 49% receiving free or reduced-price lunch in 2022-2023.

Interestingly, while Mount Healthy Elementary struggles academically, nearby schools within the same district, such as Clifty Creek Elementary and Lillian Schmitt Elementary, also perform below the state average, suggesting that the academic challenges may be systemic within the district. In contrast, schools outside the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation, such as CSA Lincoln Campus and Southside Elementary, demonstrate significantly higher academic performance, highlighting the potential for improvement at Mount Healthy Elementary if the school can emulate the practices of these higher-performing institutions.

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.
