Blythe Elementary

Summary:

Blythe Elementary is a public elementary school located in Huntersville, North Carolina, serving 915 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools district, which is ranked 129 out of 243 districts in the state.

Blythe Elementary has consistently outperformed the district and state in mathematics proficiency across grades 3-5, but its reading performance has been more mixed. The school's African American and White students have performed particularly well, ranking in the top 101 and 228 out of over 900 North Carolina elementary schools, respectively. However, the school's Hispanic students have struggled, ranking in the bottom 658 schools. Compared to nearby schools, Trillium Springs Montessori has outperformed Blythe Elementary in both math and reading, while Long Creek Elementary and Hornets Nest Elementary have lower proficiency rates.

Blythe Elementary's relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 29% to 45% over the past three years, may contribute to its challenges. Additionally, the school's per-student spending of $9,814 in 2018-2019 is lower than the $15,600 spent per student at Trillium Springs Montessori, and the student-teacher ratio at Blythe Elementary has increased from 14.8 to 18.5 over the past few years, which may impact the school's ability to provide individualized attention to students.

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.
