Windermere Elementary School

Summary:

Windermere Elementary School is a high-performing public elementary school in Upper Arlington City, Ohio, serving 555 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in the state, with exceptional academic performance, low chronic absenteeism, and outstanding test scores.

Windermere Elementary School's academic achievements are truly impressive. The school has ranked between 6th and 47th out of over 1,600 schools in Ohio over the past decade, and in the 2022-2023 school year, it ranked 26th in the state. Its students consistently outperform their peers in the Upper Arlington City school district and across Ohio on standardized tests, with 93.5% of 5th-grade students proficient or better in Science, compared to 80.1% in the district and 63.9% statewide. The school's low chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 0.5% to 5.6% over the past few years, is another indicator of its strong student engagement and attendance.

While Windermere Elementary School's academic excellence is undeniable, the school's student population is significantly less diverse than the surrounding schools in the Upper Arlington City district, with 85.05% of students identifying as white in the 2022-2023 school year. This lack of racial diversity could be an area for the school to explore and address, as diversity and inclusion are important for providing a well-rounded educational experience for all students. Additionally, the school's relatively high student-teacher ratio, ranging from 23.2 to 29.2 students per teacher, may present challenges in providing individualized attention and support to students.

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.
