Summary:

Gladiola Elementary School is a public elementary school in Wyoming, Michigan, serving 292 students in grades K-4. The school is part of the Wyoming Public Schools district, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Gladiola Elementary stands out from nearby schools in several key ways. It has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (54.45%) compared to surrounding schools, which range from 19.49% to 56.44% Hispanic. Academically, Gladiola's proficiency rates on the M-Step assessments are consistently lower than state and district averages in both English Language Arts and Math for grades 3 and 4. For example, in 2022-2023, Gladiola's 3rd grade ELA proficiency was 22.2% compared to the state average of 40.9%. The school has also experienced a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 6.7% in 2019-2020 to 26.2% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the 10.2% to 29.7% range of nearby schools.

Gladiola's challenges extend beyond academics. The school has an exceptionally high percentage of students (85.96%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, significantly higher than the 28.93% to 97.09% range of surrounding schools. While Gladiola's spending per student has increased from $11,673 in 2019-2020 to $18,260 in 2022-2023, this is still higher than some nearby schools like Grandville East Elementary and Grandville South Elementary, which are part of the higher-performing Grandville Public Schools district. Addressing Gladiola's challenges will be crucial for improving student outcomes and providing a high-quality education for the community.

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.
