Milton-Union Elementary School

Summary:

Milton-Union Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 609 students in grades K-5 in West Milton, Ohio, which is part of the Milton-Union Exempted Village School District. The school consistently outperforms the state average on Ohio State Tests, with particularly strong results in science, math, and English language arts. However, the school has seen a notable increase in chronic absenteeism rates, rising from 4.6% in 2019-2020 to 16.9% in the current school year.

One of Milton-Union Elementary's key strengths is its low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 14.5 to 16 students per teacher over the past few years, which is lower than nearby schools like Heywood Elementary and Northmoor Elementary, which have ratios between 18 and 22 students per teacher. This smaller class size may contribute to Milton-Union's strong academic performance. However, the school's student population is predominantly White, with only a small percentage of minority students, which is less diverse than some nearby schools like Englewood Elementary and Englewood Hills Elementary.

Despite having a lower spending per student ($9,019 in 2018-2019) compared to nearby schools, Milton-Union Elementary has been able to maintain its strong academic results, suggesting efficient resource allocation. Overall, Milton-Union Elementary stands out as a high-performing school in the region, but the increase in chronic absenteeism and lack of demographic diversity are areas that may warrant further attention and improvement efforts by the school and 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.
