Libby Booth Elementary

Summary:

Libby Booth Elementary is a public elementary school in Reno, Nevada, serving 374 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Washoe County School District, which is ranked 4 out of 12 in the state and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Libby Booth Elementary faces several challenges, including a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (49.2%) compared to nearby schools, consistently ranking in the bottom half of Nevada elementary schools with a 1-star rating, and significantly lower academic performance in both mathematics and reading compared to district and state averages. The school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio and a 100% free and reduced lunch rate, indicating a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. These factors suggest the need for targeted interventions and support to address the unique needs of the student population.

Interestingly, the nearby Honors Academy of Literature and Mater Academy of Northern Nevada, which are state-sponsored charter schools, significantly outperform Libby Booth Elementary on academic measures. This suggests that the school may benefit from exploring best practices and strategies employed by these higher-performing schools to improve its own 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.
