Lincoln Elementary School

Summary:

Lincoln Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 340 students in grades K-6 in the Springfield City School District in Springfield, Ohio. The school has a diverse student population that is predominantly African American (33.53%) and White (27.94%), with significant Hispanic (17.65%) and multi-racial (20.88%) representation. However, Lincoln Elementary has consistently ranked among the lowest-performing elementary schools in Ohio, with a statewide ranking between 1386 and 1480 out of 1596-1687 schools over the past 10 years.

One of the key factors contributing to Lincoln Elementary's poor academic performance is its extremely high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 21.6% in 2019-2020 to a staggering 74.6% in 2020-2021. This is significantly higher than the state and district averages. Additionally, Lincoln Elementary students perform well below state and district averages on Ohio state assessments across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 5.8% of 3rd graders were proficient or better in math, compared to 62.2% statewide, and only 6.7% of 6th graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 55% statewide. The school's performance is particularly concerning for its African American and low-socioeconomic status student subgroups, ranking 572 out of 610 Ohio elementary schools for its African American students and 1338 out of 1447 for its low-income students.

While Lincoln Elementary struggles academically, several nearby schools in the Springfield City School District, such as Warder Park-Wayne Elementary, Snyder Park Elementary, and Kenwood Elementary, perform somewhat better but still lag behind state averages. This suggests that the challenges faced by Lincoln Elementary may be part of a broader, systemic issue within the district. Additionally, the nearby Shawnee Elementary School, which serves a more affluent and predominantly White student population, also performs below state averages, indicating that demographic factors alone do not fully explain Lincoln's challenges.

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.
