Valley Forge Elementary School

Summary:

Valley Forge Elementary School is a public elementary school in Huber Heights, Ohio, serving 549 students in grades K-6. The school is part of the Huber Heights City School District, which has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Valley Forge has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with higher percentages of African American (28.78%) and multi-racial (15.85%) students. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by state test scores, is generally lower than the Huber Heights City and Ohio state averages across various grade levels and subjects. For example, in 2022-2023, only 16.7% of 5th-grade students were proficient or better in Mathematics, compared to 35% for the Huber Heights City district and 56.6% for the state. Additionally, Valley Forge has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate of 24.5% and a higher student-teacher ratio of 18.5, compared to the nearby schools.

The school's persistent academic challenges, racial achievement gaps, and high proportion of students from low-income families (55.01% receive free or reduced-price lunch) suggest that Valley Forge may require targeted interventions and support to improve student outcomes. While the nearby schools in the Huber Heights City district also have relatively low performance compared to the state, Valley Forge consistently ranks lower than these schools, indicating that it may face unique challenges that the other schools do not. These factors, combined with the school's 1-2 star rating from SchoolDigger over the past several years, highlight the need for focused efforts to address the educational needs of the students at Valley Forge Elementary 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.
