Best Public Schools in Zip Code 28364


Summary:

The 28364 zip code area in North Carolina is home to 4 schools, including 3 elementary schools (Prospect Elementary, Oxendine Elementary, and Townsend Elementary) and 1 high school (Purnell Swett High). These schools serve a predominantly low-income student population, with all schools having extremely high free/reduced lunch rates ranging from 98.91% to 99.65%.

Among the standout schools, Prospect Elementary performs relatively well on state assessments, with higher proficiency rates than the Public Schools of Robeson County and state averages in many grade levels and subjects. Prospect Elementary also has a high percentage of Native American students (91.04%) and maintains a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 16.2. Oxendine Elementary has shown improvement in its state ranking, moving from 0 stars in 2020-2021 to 2 stars in 2022-2023, and demonstrates strong performance in mathematics.

However, the data also reveals significant disparities in academic performance between the schools, with Purnell Swett High having lower proficiency rates compared to the state averages in English II, Math I, and Biology. This suggests that factors beyond just student demographics and socioeconomic status may be contributing to the differences in academic outcomes, and targeted interventions could be beneficial in addressing these challenges.
