Ezzell Elementary

Summary:

Ezzell Elementary is an alternative public school located in Hallettsville, Texas, serving grades PK-12 with a total enrollment of 112 students. The school is part of the Ezzell Independent School District (ISD), and its student body is predominantly white (around 75%) with smaller percentages of Hispanic, two or more races, African American, and Asian students.

Ezzell Elementary stands out for its exceptional academic performance, maintaining a 0% dropout rate and consistently outperforming the state and district averages on STAAR tests, particularly in 4th grade reading, 5th grade reading, and 4th grade math. Despite having a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (42.86% to 56.84%), the school allocates resources effectively, with higher per-student spending and a lower student-teacher ratio compared to the state average. These factors contribute to the school's ability to support the needs of its economically disadvantaged population and achieve strong academic outcomes.

While Ezzell Elementary performs well overall, there are a few areas, such as 8th grade math, 5th grade science, and Algebra I, where the school's proficiency rates are lower than the state average. These areas could be targeted for improvement. Additionally, as an alternative school, Ezzell Elementary may have unique approaches or programs that contribute to its success, and further investigation into the school's educational model and practices could provide valuable insights for other schools seeking to support student achievement.

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.
