Shawnee Elementary School stands out for its strong academic performance, with consistently higher state test scores compared to nearby Springfield City School District schools. For example, in 2022-2023, Shawnee's 5th-grade science proficiency rate was 73%, compared to the district's 31.9% and the state's 63.9%. The school also ranked 1st out of 128 Ohio elementary schools in 2021-2022 for its performance with gifted and talented students, earning a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. However, Shawnee has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 4.6% in 2019-2020 to 19% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the state average.

One notable difference between Shawnee Elementary School and the nearby schools is its racial makeup. Shawnee has a significantly higher percentage of white students (79.41%) compared to the more diverse student populations at schools like Lagonda Elementary School, Snyder Park Elementary School, and Fulton Elementary School. This disparity suggests potential equity and access issues that may need to be addressed.

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.
