Anthony Carnevale Elementary

Summary:

Anthony Carnevale Elementary is a public elementary school in Providence, Rhode Island, serving 464 students from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant challenges, with consistently low academic performance, high poverty rates, and a student population that is predominantly Hispanic, which is notably higher than the nearby schools and the state average.

Despite spending more per student than nearby schools, ranging from $21,238 to $24,837 per year, Anthony Carnevale Elementary consistently underperforms in both English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 12.2% of 3rd-grade students were proficient or better in ELA, compared to the Providence district average of 15.1% and the state average of 36.8%. The school's high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 84.7% to 87.03%, also suggests broader socioeconomic challenges that may be impacting student learning.

Interestingly, the nearby schools, such as Winsor Hill School, Webster Avenue School, and William D'Abate Elementary School, which also serve predominantly low-income and minority student populations, generally outperform Anthony Carnevale Elementary in academic achievement. This suggests that there may be successful practices or strategies employed at these schools that could be replicated or adapted to benefit Anthony Carnevale Elementary and address the persistent racial disparities in educational outcomes.

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.
