Best Public Schools in Battleboro, NC


The city of Battleboro, North Carolina is home to 4 schools - 2 elementary schools and 2 middle schools - that serve the local community. While the schools in this area face challenges, with most ranking in the bottom half or bottom 15% of schools statewide, there are some standout institutions that are worth highlighting.

Red Oak Middle School stands out as the middle school with the highest student-teacher ratio in the Nash County Public Schools district. However, it has shown improvement in its statewide ranking over the past 3 years and outperforms the district and state averages in several test score categories. In contrast, Coker-Wimberly Elementary, part of the Edgecombe County Public Schools district, has the lowest student-teacher ratio among elementary schools in the district, but has maintained a consistent 1-star rating from SchoolDigger over the past 3 years.

The schools in Battleboro serve economically disadvantaged communities, with all schools having high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 64.43% at Red Oak Middle to 98.81% at Coker-Wimberly Elementary. This, combined with the uneven distribution of resources and staffing across the schools, as evidenced by the varying student-teacher ratios, likely contributes to the overall lower academic performance of the schools in the area. However, the fact that some schools, like Red Oak Middle and Coker-Wimberly Elementary, are outperforming their district and state averages in certain subject areas suggests that there may be pockets of excellence that could be leveraged to improve the overall performance of the schools in Battleboro.
