Cartoogechaye Elementary

Summary:

Cartoogechaye Elementary is a public elementary school in Franklin, North Carolina, serving 349 students in grades PK-4. The school is part of the Macon County Schools district, which is ranked 111 out of 243 districts in the state.

Cartoogechaye Elementary has a relatively homogeneous student population, with a majority of white students (around 77%) and a significant Hispanic population (around 17-18%). The school has shown strong academic performance, particularly in mathematics, with 3rd and 4th-grade students consistently outperforming the district and state averages. However, the school's reading performance has been more mixed, with 3rd-grade reading proficiency rates slightly below the district and state averages. Cartoogechaye Elementary also has a relatively high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from around 29% to 60% over the past few years, which is higher than some nearby schools like Blue Ridge School and Fairview Elementary.

Despite its strong academic performance, Cartoogechaye Elementary's statewide ranking has declined over the past few years, from a high of 188 out of 1,403 North Carolina elementary schools in 2012-2013 to a ranking of 669 out of 1,502 in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school may be facing increasing competition from other high-performing schools in the state, such as those in the Jackson County Public Schools district, which have higher academic proficiency rates and statewide rankings.

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.
