Bear Elementary School

Summary:

Bear Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 169 students in grades K-5 in Miamisburg, Ohio. It is part of the Miamisburg City School District, which is ranked 424 out of 835 school districts in Ohio and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Bear Elementary stands out in several ways compared to surrounding schools. It has a significantly higher percentage of white students (86.39%) than the more diverse racial compositions of nearby schools like Harry Russell Elementary School and Valley View Primary School. Academically, Bear Elementary lags behind the district and state averages in math proficiency across grades 3-5, but outperforms in 5th grade science. The school has also seen a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 3.4% to 22% in recent years, higher than the surrounding schools. Additionally, Bear Elementary has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (55.62%) compared to the other area schools.

These insights suggest that Bear Elementary may benefit from analyzing its curriculum, instructional practices, and resource allocation to address academic disparities, particularly in math. The school should also explore the underlying causes of the rise in chronic absenteeism and implement strategies to improve student attendance. Additionally, the school's higher percentage of economically disadvantaged students indicates a need for targeted support and resources to ensure these students have the necessary tools to succeed.

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.
