While the school's performance is generally solid, its statewide ranking has dropped from 52nd out of 502 elementary schools in 2009-2010 to 226th out of 459 in 2022-2023, indicating a potential decline in relative performance over time. Further analysis and comparison to similar schools or state-level benchmarks could provide deeper insights and identify areas for improvement.
