North Miami Elementary School

Summary:

North Miami Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 369 students in grades PK-6 in Denver, Indiana, which is part of the North Miami Community Schools district.

While North Miami Elementary School outperforms the district and state in several key metrics, including higher test scores in 3rd grade ELA and math as well as 4th grade science, and lower chronic absenteeism rates, the school has seen a concerning decline in its performance over the past decade. Its statewide ranking has dropped from 275 out of 1,035 schools in 2012-2013 to 570 out of 1,016 schools in 2022-2023, and its star rating has decreased from 4 stars to 2 stars. This decline may be attributed to the school's lower spending per student ($8,317) compared to surrounding schools, which range from $8,111 to $12,454 per student.

Another area of concern is the school's racial homogeneity, with 88.89% of its students being white, significantly higher than the surrounding schools, which range from 78.87% to 93.61% white students. This lack of diversity may impact the educational experience for students. Additionally, while North Miami Elementary School outperforms the district and state in some areas, it lags behind several nearby schools, such as Sharp Creek Elementary School and Caston Elementary School, in terms of test scores and overall performance.

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.
