Village East Elementary School

Summary:

Village East Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-6 in Houma, Louisiana, which is part of the Terrebonne Parish school district. The school has seen a shift in its racial demographics, with an increasing percentage of Hispanic students and a decreasing percentage of African American students in recent years.

While Village East Elementary School has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Louisiana elementary schools, with a 2-star rating, the school has shown some strengths in specific student subgroups. For example, the school's African American students and English Language Learner students have performed relatively well, ranking in the top half of Louisiana schools in those categories. However, the school's White students and Low Socioeconomic Status students have performed below average compared to their peers in the state. Additionally, the school's performance on LEAP tests is generally below the Terrebonne Parish and Louisiana state averages, particularly in Mathematics and Social Studies, though its performance in English Language Arts is closer to the district and state averages.

When compared to other elementary schools in the Terrebonne Parish district and the neighboring Lafourche Parish district, Village East Elementary School generally performs below the top-performing schools in the region, such as Mulberry Elementary School and Bourg Elementary School. Understanding the factors contributing to these performance disparities could help the school develop more targeted interventions and support strategies to ensure equitable outcomes for all students.

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.
