Akron Elementary School

Summary:

Akron Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 385 students in grades K-5 in Akron, Indiana, which is part of the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation. This school outperforms the district in several key academic areas and has consistently ranked higher than the district average among Indiana elementary schools.

Akron Elementary School has higher proficiency rates than the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation in English Language Arts (42.59% vs. 32.83%), Math (49.38% vs. 40.5%), and Science (40% vs. 34.42%) for all grades. This trend is consistent across multiple grade levels and subject areas. Additionally, Akron Elementary School has moved from a statewide ranking of 592 out of 1,016 schools in 2020-2021 to 441 out of 1,016 in 2022-2023, placing it in the top half of elementary schools in Indiana. However, the school's chronic absenteeism rate of 10.5% is higher than the state average, suggesting an area for improvement.

When comparing Akron Elementary School to other nearby schools, such as Mentone Elementary, Caston Elementary, Eisenhower Elementary, and Washington Elementary, Akron generally performs better in academic proficiency rates, particularly in Math and Science. This suggests Akron Elementary may be a stronger performing school within its local area. However, the school's high percentage of students (55.58%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch indicates a significant population of economically disadvantaged students, which may contribute to the school's performance and should be considered when evaluating its strengths and areas for improvement.

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.
