Liberty Elementary School

Summary:

Liberty Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 424 students in grades K-5 in Powell, Ohio, which is part of the Worthington City School District. This well-performing school stands out for its diverse student population, strong academic achievements, and specialized programs for gifted and English Language Learner (ELL) students.

With a relatively diverse student body, Liberty Elementary has a higher percentage of non-white students compared to some nearby schools like Worthington Hills Elementary and Bluffsview Elementary. Academically, Liberty consistently outperforms state averages, with a majority of students scoring proficient or better in core subjects. The school's gifted and talented program is particularly strong, ranking 18th out of 219 Ohio elementary schools, and its ELL program is also high-performing, ranking 17th out of 213 schools.

While Liberty Elementary faces some challenges, such as a recent increase in chronic absenteeism, the school's overall metrics suggest it is providing a quality education to its diverse student population. Compared to nearby schools, Liberty generally performs well, though some schools, like Worthington Hills Elementary and Bluffsview Elementary, outperform Liberty in certain areas, particularly in Mathematics. Liberty's relatively low student-teacher ratio of 14.7 may contribute to its academic success, and its higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch suggests it serves a more diverse socioeconomic population than some nearby schools.

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.
