Lincoln Elementary School for Arts

Summary:

Lincoln Elementary School for Arts is a public elementary school located in Anoka, Minnesota, serving 363 students in grades K-5 and part of the Anoka-Hennepin School District.

While Lincoln Elementary has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with higher percentages of African American, Hispanic, and multiracial students, its academic performance lags behind. The school's proficiency rates in Math (45.68%) and Reading (45.68%) are lower than the district (52.51% and 52.66%) and state (45.49% and 49.92%) averages. Additionally, Lincoln Elementary has a higher percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (55.37%) than the surrounding schools, which range from 28.77% to 66.47%. This suggests that the school may need to address the specific educational needs of its diverse student population and the impact of socioeconomic status on learning.

Compared to nearby schools like Dayton Elementary, Oxbow Creek Elementary, and Champlin/Brooklyn Pk Acd MathEnvSci, Lincoln Elementary has lower academic performance, a higher percentage of students from low-income families, and a declining statewide ranking, from 263 out of 826 Minnesota elementary schools in 2013-2014 to 549 out of 845 in 2022-2023. This suggests the need for targeted interventions and strategies to improve the school's academic outcomes and overall quality.

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.

Open Quote I find these ranking inaccurate! My son just completed 5th grade and this school is led by an incompetent principal. Not once did my son have a class with less then 20 students. Teachers are lazy! My son for several years was placed in advanced math and reading before funding was pulled. After that the teacher had him help teach students with their math and reading. So instead of learning he was forced to help students who’s parents and teachers would not help. This school and district is a joke! As a parent I advise other people to either move or homeschool!

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.
