Childs Elementary School

Summary:

Childs Elementary School is a public elementary school in Bloomington, Indiana, serving 483 students in grades PK-6. As part of the Monroe County Community School Corporation, Childs Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in the state, with exceptional academic performance, a diverse student population, and low rates of chronic absenteeism and free/reduced lunch eligibility.

Childs Elementary's academic excellence is evident in its consistently high ILEARN test scores, with over 70% of students proficient or better in both English Language Arts and Math - significantly higher than the district and state averages. This performance, along with the school's statewide ranking between 1st and 16th place over the past 10 years, demonstrates the exceptional education it provides. The school's diverse student population, with a racial makeup that includes 75.36% White, 2.48% African American, 3.31% Hispanic, 10.35% Asian, and 8.49% two or more races, is also noteworthy and may contribute to its strong academic results.

In comparison to nearby schools in the Monroe County Community School Corporation, such as Highland Park Elementary, Arlington Heights Elementary, and Fairview Elementary, Childs Elementary stands out with its exceptional performance. These nearby schools have lower ILEARN test scores and higher chronic absenteeism and free/reduced lunch rates, indicating they serve student populations with greater socioeconomic challenges. While the Bloomington Project School, a public charter school in the area, also performs well academically, its performance is still not as exceptional as Childs Elementary's.

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.
