Liberty Elementary School

Summary:

Liberty Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, serving grades PK-5 with a student population of 624. The school is part of the Broken Arrow School District, which is ranked 182 out of 250 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Liberty Elementary has a relatively diverse student population, with 41.83% White, 22.12% Hispanic, 12.34% Asian, and 14.58% two or more races. However, its academic performance, as measured by the percentage of students proficient or better in OSTP assessments, is generally lower than the Broken Arrow district and state averages. For example, in 2022-2023, only 32% of 5th-grade students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 32% for Broken Arrow and 28% for the state. The school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 16.8 to 17.5 over the past few years, but a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 42.66% to 50.48% over the past few years.

Liberty Elementary's statewide ranking has declined over the years, from a high of 161 out of 840 Oklahoma elementary schools in 2008-2009 to a low of 239 out of 276 in 2022-2023. While the school has a more diverse student population, its academic performance is generally lower than the nearby Country Lane Intermediate Elementary and Timber Ridge Elementary schools, which have higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics. The high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at Liberty Elementary suggests that the school serves a population with lower socioeconomic status, which may be a contributing factor to the school's lower academic performance.

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.
