Summary:

Creekside Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-4 in Franklin, Indiana, with a student population of 510. It is part of the Franklin Community School Corporation, a highly-ranked district in the state.

Creekside Elementary consistently outperforms the district and state in ILEARN test scores, with 49% of students proficient or better in ELA and 55.5% in Math, compared to the district's 45.43% and 43.19%, respectively. However, the school has a higher chronic absenteeism rate of 15.1%, compared to nearby schools like Union Elementary (6.5%) and Needham Elementary (5.4%). Creekside also has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at 50.98%, compared to the district average.

Despite these challenges, Creekside Elementary has maintained a consistent level of academic performance, with its statewide ranking ranging from 208 to 449 out of over 1,000 Indiana elementary schools over the past 10 years. The school's higher per-student spending and lower student-teacher ratio suggest it is able to allocate more resources per student, which may contribute to its strong academic outcomes. However, Creekside's student population is less racially diverse compared to nearby schools, with only 12.75% non-White students in 2022-2023.

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.
