Marie G Davis School

Summary:

Marie G Davis School is a public elementary and middle school serving 355 students in grades K-8 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The school is part of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools district, which is ranked 129 out of 243 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Marie G Davis School faces significant challenges, with a student population that is predominantly African American (53.8%) and Hispanic (43.38%), and an extremely high percentage (over 99%) of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage. The school consistently ranks in the bottom 5-10% of North Carolina elementary schools based on statewide test scores, with proficiency rates well below the district and state averages in mathematics, reading, and science. This is particularly true for female students, African American students, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, who perform in the bottom 5-10% of North Carolina schools for these subgroups.

While Marie G Davis School spends approximately $11,834 per student, which is higher than the state average, the school's performance lags behind nearby higher-performing schools such as Dilworth Elementary School: Latta Campus and Park Road Montessori. These stark performance gaps, along with the school's consistently low rankings over the past several years, suggest that addressing the unique needs and challenges of the school's predominantly African American, Hispanic, and economically disadvantaged student population may be key to improving academic outcomes.

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.
