Heywood Elementary School

Summary:

Heywood Elementary School is a public elementary school in Troy, Ohio, serving 274 students in grades K-5. As part of the Troy City District, which is ranked 300 out of 835 districts in Ohio, Heywood faces some unique challenges compared to nearby schools.

While Heywood has a more diverse student population, with higher percentages of African American and Hispanic students compared to surrounding schools, its academic performance lags behind. The school has significantly lower test scores across all grade levels and subjects, with 5th grade Science proficiency at 54.5% compared to 70.7% for the Troy City district and 63.9% for Ohio. Heywood also struggles with high chronic absenteeism at 30%, much higher than the 10-28.2% range of nearby schools like Concord Elementary and Hook Elementary. Additionally, over 60% of Heywood's students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating significant economic challenges for the school's population.

Despite these obstacles, Heywood's data suggests there is potential for improvement. By addressing the key factors contributing to its lower performance, such as chronic absenteeism and socioeconomic disadvantages, the school could make meaningful gains. Comparing Heywood's practices to the success of nearby schools in the Troy City District could provide valuable insights and strategies to help Heywood better serve its diverse student population.

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.
