Central Noble Elementary School

Summary:

Central Noble Elementary School is a public elementary school in Albion, Indiana, serving 247 students in grades 3-5. The school is part of the Central Noble Community School Corporation, which has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Central Noble Elementary School has a significantly higher percentage of white students (91.9%) compared to nearby schools, its academic performance lags behind many of its peers. The school's test scores, particularly in English Language Arts, are lower than the state averages and the scores of higher-performing schools like Topeka Elementary School. Additionally, Central Noble Elementary has a relatively high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 7.2% to 12.7% over the past three years, which is higher than the rates of some nearby schools like Wayne Center Elementary and South Side Elementary. The school also has a significantly higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (55.06%) compared to the surrounding schools.

The analysis of Central Noble Elementary School's data reveals that the school's performance, as measured by its statewide ranking and SchoolDigger star rating, has declined over the years, dropping from a 4-star rating in 2014-2015 to a 2-star rating in recent years. This suggests that there may be opportunities for the school to learn from the practices and strategies of its higher-performing neighbors, such as Topeka Elementary School and Wayne Center Elementary School, in order to improve its academic performance and better serve its students.

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.
