Slate Hill Elementary School

Summary:

Slate Hill Elementary School is a public elementary school in Worthington, Ohio, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school has a diverse student population, with a mix of White, African American, Hispanic, Asian, and multiracial students.

Slate Hill Elementary consistently outperforms the state average on Ohio State Tests, particularly in 5th-grade science and 3rd-grade mathematics. The school's African American and Hispanic students also rank among the top in the state, demonstrating the school's ability to support the academic success of diverse subgroups. However, the school's performance lags behind the Worthington City School District average in some areas, such as 4th-grade English Language Arts and 5th-grade mathematics. Additionally, Slate Hill Elementary has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, which is higher than the district average for nearby schools like Worthington Estates Elementary School and Wilson Hill Elementary School.

The high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at Slate Hill Elementary suggests that the school serves a population with greater socioeconomic challenges. While the school's diverse student population and subgroup performance are strengths, the school may need to address the underlying causes of the chronic absenteeism issue and ensure that it has adequate resources to support the needs of its socioeconomically disadvantaged students. By learning from the practices of higher-performing nearby schools, such as Evening Street Elementary School and Bluffsview Elementary School, Slate Hill Elementary can continue to enhance the educational experiences and outcomes for 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.
