The school is part of the Nottingham School District, which is ranked 22 out of 161 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Nottingham Elementary consistently outperforms the state average in proficiency rates for Mathematics, Reading, and Science on the NH SAS assessments, with 73% proficiency in Mathematics compared to the state average of 42%, and 66% proficiency in Reading compared to the state average of 52%. The school has been ranked among the top 50 elementary schools in New Hampshire for the past several years, reaching as high as 39th out of 237 schools in the 2022-2023 school year, placing it in the top 15% of elementary schools in the state. Nottingham Elementary's performance on the NH SAS assessments is strong across different student subgroups, including female students, male students, and White students, ranking in the top 30% of New Hampshire elementary schools for these subgroups. Additionally, the school has a relatively low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 6.75% to 10.42% over the past three years, significantly lower than the state average and many of the nearby schools, such as Lamprey River Elementary School and Epping Elementary School.

Nottingham Elementary School's consistent academic excellence, equitable outcomes across student subgroups, and favorable student-teacher ratio compared to nearby schools make it a standout institution in the region. While the school's performance suggests a robust and effective educational program, there may be opportunities for further improvement, such as addressing any achievement gaps between student subgroups or exploring ways to support the academic growth of students at the lower end of the performance spectrum.

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.

Open Quote There is more than test scores that are special about our school. The climate, the staff, the students, and the community all come together to make this a wonderful place to learn. Close Quote

Open Quote We love Nottingham School. Although AYP progress is an issue, if you look carefully at the results it is only one subpopulation that is not making AYP. Our children have overall had wonderful teachers at this school. They are testing above grade level in all subjects, so the school must be doing something right. We love the small environment, and knowing the students and parents in the community. When we have had issues, we have had positive interactions with the teachers to resolve the issues. The one area that can be improved is to have more opportunities for accelerated students, but we also feel that it is our job as parents to provide those opportunities for our kids as well, so that is exactly what we are doing. We are very happy. Close Quote

Open Quote Nottingham School is in it's fifth year of not making AYP for both reading and math. The administration is lacking in both competence and leadership. There are some very talented teachers employed here, but too many who are just not good enough. Our children have experienced both the best and worst teachers. Close Quote

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.
