Van Wert Elementary School

Summary:

Van Wert Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 647 students in grades 1-5 in Van Wert, Ohio, which is part of the Van Wert City School District. The school performs reasonably well compared to the state average, with some areas of strength and others that could use improvement.

One of Van Wert Elementary's strengths is its test scores, which are above the state average in several key areas, including 5th grade science, 3rd grade math, and 4th grade math. However, its 5th grade math scores are slightly below the state average. The school also has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 14.9, which could be a benefit for students. On the other hand, Van Wert Elementary has seen a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 4.6% in 2019-2020 to 11.7% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the state average and nearby schools.

Compared to nearby schools, Van Wert Elementary performs better than the state average on many test scores, but lags behind some of the higher-performing schools, such as Ottoville Elementary and Crestview Elementary. The school also has a higher percentage of Hispanic students and a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, which may impact its academic performance and other factors.

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.
