London Elementary School

Summary:

London Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 916 students in grades K-5 in London, Ohio, which is part of the London City School District. While the school has a significantly higher percentage of white students compared to the state and nearby schools, it faces several challenges, including lower test scores, high chronic absenteeism, and disparities in student performance across different subgroups.

London Elementary School's test scores are generally below the state average and nearby schools, particularly in mathematics and science. For example, the school's 5th-grade science proficiency rate was 55.6% in 2022-2023, compared to the state average of 63.9%. The school also experiences high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 26.4% to 30.3% in recent years, which is significantly higher than the state average and nearby schools like Brown Elementary (Hilliard City) and Dohron Wilson Elementary (Mechanicsburg Exempted Village), which have lower chronic absenteeism rates.

London Elementary School's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with multi-racial students performing relatively well compared to other subgroups. However, the school ranks relatively low for white students and students with disabilities. Addressing the specific needs of these underperforming subgroups, as well as the high chronic absenteeism rates, could be important strategies for improving the school's overall performance and closing the achievement gap with nearby higher-performing schools.

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.
