Rushmore Elementary School

Summary:

Rushmore Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 619 students in grades K-6 in Huber Heights, Ohio, which is part of the Huber Heights City School District. While the school has a diverse student population, its academic performance, as measured by state test proficiency rates, is generally below the state and district averages, particularly in Math and English Language Arts. Additionally, Rushmore Elementary has experienced high rates of chronic absenteeism, ranging from 20% to 26% in recent years, which is significantly higher than the state average.

The performance at Rushmore Elementary varies significantly across different student subgroups. While the school's African American and multi-racial students perform relatively better compared to their peers in the state, the White and low socioeconomic status students perform significantly worse. This uneven performance is concerning and may warrant further investigation and targeted interventions. Interestingly, the nearby elementary schools in the Huber Heights City School District, such as Wright Brothers, Valley Forge, and Monticello, have similar academic performance and ranking profiles to Rushmore Elementary, suggesting that the challenges faced by the school may be systemic within the district.

Rushmore Elementary has consistently ranked in the bottom third of Ohio elementary schools, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years, placing the school in the bottom 40% of elementary schools in the state. This low ranking and rating may indicate challenges in resource allocation and distribution within the Huber Heights City School District, which could be impacting the performance of schools like Rushmore Elementary. Addressing the high rates of chronic absenteeism and the significant performance gaps between different student subgroups could be key focus areas for improvement at the school.

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.
