Buckeye Valley West Elementary School

Summary:

Buckeye Valley West Elementary School is a public elementary school in Ostrander, Ohio, serving 659 students in grades PK-5 and part of the Delaware City school district.

Buckeye Valley West Elementary School consistently performs above the state average on Ohio State Tests, with 76.9% of 5th-grade students proficient or better in Science compared to the state average of 63.9%, and 87% of 4th-grade students proficient or better in Mathematics compared to the state average of 66.8%. However, the school has a relatively homogeneous student population, with 88.62% of students identifying as White, which is higher than the racial diversity of the surrounding schools like David Smith Elementary School and Wyandot Run Elementary School. Additionally, Buckeye Valley West Elementary School has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 4.7% in 2019-2020 to 11.7% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the state average and the surrounding schools.

Buckeye Valley West Elementary School also has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at 7.44% in 2022-2023, which is significantly lower than the surrounding schools in the Olentangy Local and Dublin City districts. This suggests that the school may not be serving a representative cross-section of the local community, which could have implications for resource allocation and the support provided to students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.

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.
