Tecumseh North Elementary

Summary:

Tecumseh North Elementary is a public elementary school in Tecumseh, Kansas, serving 470 students in grades PK-6 as part of the Shawnee Heights School District. While the school has a more diverse student population compared to nearby Tecumseh South Elementary and Shawnee Heights Elementary, it consistently ranks in the bottom half of Kansas elementary schools and has a below-average 1 or 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Tecumseh North Elementary's academic performance is a concern, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics generally lower than the Shawnee Heights district and state averages. The school's Hispanic students perform relatively well, ranking 91st out of 245 Kansas elementary schools in ELA proficiency, but the school's White students and students with special education needs rank in the bottom 10-15% of the state. Additionally, over 50% of Tecumseh North's students come from low-income families, and their performance is strongly correlated with socioeconomic status, with low-income students struggling to achieve proficiency.

Despite these challenges, Tecumseh North Elementary's performance in certain subgroups and grade levels suggests potential areas for improvement. The school's Hispanic students and students in specific grade levels, such as 4th-grade ELA and 6th-grade Mathematics, are performing better than the overall school. By addressing the needs of the school's low-income and special education student populations, Tecumseh North Elementary may be able to improve its overall academic performance and move up in the state rankings.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

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.
