Beiger Elementary School

Summary:

Beiger Elementary School is a public elementary school in Mishawaka, Indiana, serving 546 students in grades PK-6. While the school outperforms the School City of Mishawaka district in several key metrics, it faces challenges in comparison to some higher-performing nearby schools.

Beiger Elementary has a higher percentage of white students (70.51%) compared to nearby schools like Emmons Elementary (46.44%) and Lasalle Elementary (55.25%). The school also outperforms the district and state in ILEARN test scores, with 30.38% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and 36.54% in Math, compared to 28.42% and 27.66% for the district, respectively. However, Beiger's chronic absenteeism rate of 19.8% is still higher than the state average, though lower than some nearby schools like Lasalle Elementary (30.9%) and Emmons Elementary (36.8%).

While Beiger Elementary has seen improvements in recent years, it still lags behind some higher-performing nearby schools in the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation, such as Twin Branch Elementary and Fred J. Hums Elementary. These schools have significantly higher test scores and lower chronic absenteeism rates. Additionally, Beiger's high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (67.22%) suggests that the school may face challenges in addressing the needs of its diverse student population.

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.
