Bloomington Elementary

Summary:

Bloomington Elementary is a small elementary school in Bloomington, Texas, serving grades 2-5 with a total enrollment of 265 students. Unfortunately, the school has consistently struggled with academic performance, ranking in the bottom 20% of Texas elementary schools for the past 10 years.

Bloomington Elementary's academic performance, as measured by STAAR test scores, is significantly below the state average across all grade levels and subjects. In 2022-2023, only 23-48% of students were proficient in reading and math, compared to the state averages of 47-56%. The school's performance is also lower than its own Bloomington Independent School District (ISD), indicating it is one of the lower-performing schools within the district. The school's high percentage of Hispanic (82-85%) and economically disadvantaged (87-91%) students may contribute to these academic challenges.

Interestingly, nearby schools like Placedo Elementary (within the same district) and Crain Elementary (in the Victoria ISD) have higher academic performance and better overall ratings, despite serving similar student populations. This suggests that factors beyond just student demographics, such as school leadership, teaching quality, and resource allocation, may be contributing to the differences in academic outcomes.

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.
