Wolf Creek Elementary School

Summary:

Wolf Creek Elementary School is a public elementary school in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, serving around 550 students in grades PK-5. 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.

Wolf Creek stands out from nearby schools in several ways. It has a more diverse student population, with a higher percentage of White, Hispanic, and multiracial students compared to other local schools. Academically, Wolf Creek's test scores are generally stronger than the Broken Arrow and Oklahoma state averages, particularly in 5th-grade English Language Arts and Mathematics. However, the school's statewide ranking has declined in recent years, dropping from 72nd out of 406 schools in 2017-2018 to 162nd out of 276 schools in 2022-2023, with a corresponding decrease in its SchoolDigger rating from 4 stars to 2 stars.

Another key difference is Wolf Creek's lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (37.64%) compared to some nearby schools like Lynn Wood Elementary (61.77%) and Oak Crest Elementary (66.67%). This suggests Wolf Creek may serve a more economically advantaged population, which could impact the resources and support available to students.

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.
