The data reveals stark disparities in performance and resources across the schools in the district. The high concentration of Native American students at certain schools, such as Prospect Elementary, which has 91.04% Native American students, is noteworthy and may point to issues of equity and access for this population. Overall, the Public Schools of Robeson County face significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to their students, and targeted interventions and resource allocation may be needed to raise achievement levels and provide more equitable opportunities across the district.
