Marquette Montessori Academy

Summary:

Marquette Montessori Academy is a public elementary school serving grades PK-6 in South Bend, Indiana, with a student population of 383. The school is part of the South Bend Community School Corporation district, which is ranked 307 out of 364 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Marquette Montessori Academy has a more diverse student population compared to the surrounding schools, with a higher percentage of African American (39.43%) and Hispanic (10.44%) students. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by ILEARN test scores, is generally lower than the district and state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 28.78% of Marquette Montessori students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 20.01% for the district and 39.7-40.8% statewide. Additionally, Marquette Montessori Academy has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate of 43.0% compared to the district and state averages, and a high percentage of students (68.93%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a higher proportion of students from low-income families.

Marquette Montessori Academy's statewide ranking has steadily declined over the past decade, from 881 out of 1,015 Indiana elementary schools in 2011-2012 to 783 out of 1,016 in 2022-2023. When compared to other nearby schools in the South Bend Community School Corporation, such as Harrison Elementary School, Marquette Montessori Academy generally performs worse academically, has higher chronic absenteeism rates, and serves a higher proportion of students from low-income families. These factors, including the high rates of chronic absenteeism and poverty, may be contributing to the school's academic challenges and persistent 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

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.
