Leesburg Elementary School

Summary:

Leesburg Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-6 in Leesburg, Indiana, which is part of the Warsaw Community Schools district. The school has seen a gradual decline in its statewide ranking over the past decade, dropping from a high of 486 out of 1,016 Indiana elementary schools in 2020-2021 to 603 out of 1,016 in the most recent 2022-2023 school year.

One key factor that differentiates Leesburg Elementary is its significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (29.31%) compared to the district average (around 15-20%) and the state. The school also has a higher chronic absenteeism rate (8.2%) compared to the district and state averages, which could be a contributing factor to its academic performance. Leesburg Elementary lags behind the district and state averages in proficiency rates across all subject areas and grade levels, with overall proficiency rates of 36.49% in ELA and 38.73% in Math, compared to the district's 42.98% and 43.97%, respectively. Additionally, Leesburg Elementary has a significantly higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (56.32%) compared to the district average (around 45-50%) and the state, indicating a higher socioeconomic need among its student population.

When comparing Leesburg Elementary to other schools in the Warsaw Community Schools district, it consistently underperforms in academic measures. For example, Eisenhower Elementary, which is also in the district, outperforms Leesburg Elementary by a significant margin in both ELA and Math proficiency rates. These challenges, along with the school's declining performance over the past decade, suggest that Leesburg Elementary may need to address its unique student population and socioeconomic factors to improve student outcomes and increase its statewide ranking.

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.
