Lasalle Elementary School

Summary:

Lasalle Elementary School is a public elementary school in Mishawaka, Indiana, serving 543 students in grades PK-6. Despite being part of the School City of Mishawaka district, which is ranked 248 out of 364 districts in the state, Lasalle consistently ranks in the bottom 10-15% of Indiana elementary schools, with academic performance significantly below state and district averages.

Lasalle Elementary School faces significant challenges, including low proficiency rates in English Language Arts (12.99%), math (16.14%), and science (11.11%), as well as high rates of chronic absenteeism, ranging from 23.4% to 42.6% in recent years. The school's student population is also economically disadvantaged, with 83.79% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. While Lasalle's academic performance lags behind neighboring Beiger Elementary and Battell Elementary schools, it still outperforms some lower-performing schools in the South Bend Community School Corporation district.

Despite the school's diverse student population, with a racial makeup of 55.25% White, 19.89% African American, 10.5% Hispanic, and 13.44% two or more races, the academic struggles are consistent across all racial and ethnic groups. Additionally, increased per-student spending, from $8,687 in 2018-2019 to $9,323 in 2021-2022, and a relatively stable student-teacher ratio have not translated into improved academic outcomes at Lasalle Elementary School.

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.
