Aberdeen Elementary

Summary:

Aberdeen Elementary is a public elementary school serving grades PK-5 in Aberdeen, North Carolina, which is part of the Moore County Schools district. The school has seen a fluctuating student racial makeup, with a current composition of 32.75% White, 32.91% African American, 20.19% Hispanic, and other minority groups.

Despite being part of a district ranked 76 out of 243 in the state, Aberdeen Elementary has consistently underperformed compared to the district and state in standardized test scores across grades 3-5 in mathematics, reading, and science. For example, in 2022-2023, only 55.3% of 3rd graders, 44.7% of 4th graders, and 39.8% of 5th graders were proficient or better in mathematics, compared to the district scores of 72.4%, 64.1%, and 68.4%, respectively. The school has been ranked in the bottom third of North Carolina elementary schools for the past several years and has only received 1-2 stars from SchoolDigger.

The performance of various student subgroups at Aberdeen Elementary is also concerning, with the school ranking in the bottom third of North Carolina elementary schools for African American, White, and multi-racial students, as well as for students with disabilities and those from low socioeconomic backgrounds. The nearby schools in the Moore County Schools district, such as Vass-Lakeview Elementary, West End Elementary, and Sandhills Farm Life Elementary, all significantly outperform Aberdeen Elementary in academic measures and have higher school rankings, suggesting that targeted interventions and support are needed to address the unique challenges faced by Aberdeen Elementary and its 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.
