Pittman Elementary Leadership Academy

Summary:

Pittman Elementary Leadership Academy is a public elementary school in Enfield, North Carolina, serving 139 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Halifax County Schools district, which is ranked 222 out of 243 districts in the state and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Pittman Elementary stands out for its significantly higher percentage of African American students (94.24%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 49.08% to 93.2% African American. Academically, the school consistently ranks in the bottom 10-15% of North Carolina elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Proficiency rates in Mathematics, Reading, and Science are well below state and district averages. Despite having a relatively low student-teacher ratio and spending significantly more per student ($18,006) than surrounding schools, Pittman Elementary's academic performance remains poor.

The school's challenges extend beyond its own campus. Nearby schools like Everetts Elementary S.T.E.M. Academy, Hollister Elementary Leadership Academy, and Aurelian Springs Institute of Global Lea also struggle academically, suggesting that the educational challenges faced by Pittman Elementary may be systemic within the Halifax County Schools district. Addressing these issues will require a comprehensive, multi-faceted approach that goes beyond simply increasing funding and focuses on addressing the underlying systemic barriers to student success.

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.
