Overbrook Elementary School

Summary:

Overbrook Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-8 in the Philadelphia City School District, with a student population of 202 as of the 2022-2023 school year. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom 10-15% of Pennsylvania elementary schools over the past decade, struggling academically with low proficiency rates in math, science, and English language arts compared to district and state averages.

Overbrook Elementary has an extremely high percentage of students (100%) eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high-poverty student population. The school spends a relatively high amount per student, ranging from $15,527 to $21,293 per student over the past four years, and has a low student-teacher ratio of 10.7 to 12.3 students per teacher. Nearby schools, such as Overbrook Edu Center and Samuel Gompers School, have similar academic performance challenges, while the local charter schools, like Harambee Institute of Science and Technology and Ad Prima Charter School, generally outperform the traditional public schools in the region.

Addressing the root causes of Overbrook Elementary's academic and socioeconomic challenges, such as resource inequities, teacher quality, and student engagement, will be crucial for improving outcomes at the school. The lack of racial diversity in the school and surrounding area is also a concern that may contribute to the academic struggles faced by these schools.

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.
