Newton Elementary School consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Ohio, with a statewide ranking between 29th and 67th out of over 1,600 schools in the past several years. The school has maintained a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating exceptional academic performance. Additionally, Newton Elementary School excels in the performance of various student subgroups, including female students, male students, white students, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, with the school's rankings in these subgroups consistently among the top in the state. The school's students also consistently outperform the state and local district averages in Ohio State Tests across all grade levels and subject areas.

While Newton Elementary School's academic performance is impressive, the school's student population is significantly less diverse compared to the surrounding schools, such as Forest Elementary School, Bradford Elementary School, and Washington Primary Elementary School. This may suggest a need to explore ways to attract and support a more diverse student body. However, Newton Elementary School's low chronic absenteeism rates, which are significantly lower than the surrounding schools, suggest that the school has effective strategies in place to promote regular student attendance and engagement.

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.
