Lanier Elementary

Summary:

Lanier Elementary is a public elementary school in Maryville, Tennessee, serving 337 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Blount County School District, which is ranked 54 out of 139 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating.

While Lanier Elementary has a relatively low student-teacher ratio, the school consistently ranks in the bottom half of Tennessee elementary schools, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. Its proficiency rates in mathematics, English language arts, and science are generally lower than the Blount County and Tennessee state averages. The school's performance is particularly low for female students and white students, ranking in the bottom third of Tennessee elementary schools for these subgroups. However, Lanier Elementary performs better for male students and students with low socioeconomic status, ranking in the middle third of Tennessee schools.

Compared to nearby schools in the Blount County district, such as Middlesettlements and Carpenters Elementary School, Lanier Elementary consistently underperforms in academic proficiency and statewide rankings. This suggests that Lanier Elementary faces significant challenges in academic performance, and further investigation and targeted interventions may be needed to address the underlying factors contributing to its struggles.

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.
