Elementary Schools in Ellenville Central School District


The Ellenville Central School District has one elementary school, Ellenville Elementary School, serving students in grades K-6. The school is located in Ellenville, New York, a small town in the Catskill Mountains region.

Ellenville Elementary School faces significant academic challenges, with student performance on state assessments consistently and significantly below the state average. For example, in 3rd grade English Language Arts, the school had only 11.83% proficiency compared to the state average of 44.89%. Similarly, in 3rd grade Math, the school's proficiency rate was 18.95% versus the state's 53.68%. The school's statewide ranking has also declined over the past three years, from 1,851 out of 2,201 New York elementary schools in 2020-2021 to 2,198 out of 2,439 in 2022-2023, with a consistent 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Despite the school's high spending per student of $21,615, which is above the state average, and a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 14:1, the academic performance remains poor. This suggests a need to evaluate the effectiveness of resource allocation and instructional practices. Additionally, the school serves a high-poverty population, with 61.13% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, which may contribute to the academic challenges. Overall, the data indicates that Ellenville Elementary School faces significant hurdles in providing a high-quality education to its students, and addressing the academic underperformance and high poverty levels should be the top priorities for the school and district leadership.
