Summit Creek Academy

Summary:

Summit Creek Academy is a public charter elementary school located in Browns Summit, North Carolina, serving 560 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school's student population is predominantly African American (62.68%), with significant percentages of White (21.07%), Hispanic (10%), and other racial groups.

Despite serving a diverse student body, Summit Creek Academy faces significant academic challenges. The school's performance on End-of-Grade (EOG) tests is consistently lower than the state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, the 3rd-grade mathematics proficiency rate was 33.3%, compared to the state average of 61.1%, and the 3rd-grade reading proficiency rate was 31.7%, compared to the state average of 48%. The school's performance is particularly low for White and Hispanic students, who rank in the bottom 10-20% of North Carolina elementary schools. As a result, Summit Creek Academy has consistently ranked in the bottom quarter of North Carolina elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past two school years.

Interestingly, the nearby schools, such as Gate City Charter, Reedy Fork Elementary, and Ceasar Cone Elementary, also have relatively low academic performance and high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. However, some of these schools, like Aggie Academy, have higher academic performance in certain grade levels and subject areas compared to Summit Creek Academy. This suggests that the challenges faced by Summit Creek Academy may be reflective of broader district-level issues, as the school is part of the Guilford County Schools district, which is ranked 197 out of 243 districts in North Carolina and is rated 1 star out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

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.
