Roebuck Elementary

Summary:

Roebuck Elementary is a public elementary school serving around 800 students in grades PK-5 in Roebuck, South Carolina, which is part of the Spartanburg 06 school district. While the school has a diverse student population, its academic performance, as measured by state test scores, is generally below the district and state averages across grade levels and subject areas. Roebuck Elementary has consistently ranked in the bottom half of South Carolina elementary schools, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating it is performing below many other schools in the state.

A closer look reveals that Roebuck Elementary's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with particularly low outcomes for students with disabilities and gifted and talented students. Additionally, the school serves a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 84.38% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. This suggests that the school's challenges may be closely tied to the socioeconomic factors of its student population.

The nearby GREEN Charter School of Spartanburg also outperforms Roebuck Elementary across multiple academic measures.

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.
