Snowhill Elementary School

Summary:

Snowhill Elementary School is a public elementary school in Springfield, Ohio, serving 447 students from kindergarten to 6th grade. The school is part of the Springfield City School District, which has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Snowhill's student population has become more diverse in recent years, with a decrease in White students and an increase in students of two or more races.

Snowhill Elementary stands out for its strong academic performance, consistently outpacing the district and state averages in proficiency across subjects and grade levels. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, 62.5% of Snowhill's 5th-graders scored proficient or better in Science, compared to 31.9% for the district and 63.9% for the state. The school has also seen a significant decrease in chronic absenteeism, from 37.1% in 2020-2021 to 20.6% in 2022-2023, though this is still higher than the state average. Snowhill's student-teacher ratio, ranging from 15.9 to 17.9 over the past three years, is lower than some nearby schools in the district.

However, Snowhill's performance varies across different student subgroups. While the school's White and multi-racial students perform relatively well, its African American, special education, and low socioeconomic status students perform significantly worse, with rankings in the bottom quarter of Ohio elementary schools. Compared to other Springfield City School District elementary schools, such as Lincoln, Warder Park-Wayne, and Perrin Woods, Snowhill generally outperforms its peers, particularly in academic proficiency. Addressing these achievement gaps should be a priority for the school and the district.

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.
