Converse Elementary

Summary:

Converse Elementary is a public elementary school in Converse, Texas, serving 604 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Judson Independent School District, which is ranked 786 out of 968 districts in Texas and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Converse Elementary consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of Texas elementary schools, with academic performance significantly below state and district averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 22% of 3rd graders were proficient in reading, compared to 50% statewide. The school's performance is particularly low in mathematics, with only 15-35% of students achieving proficiency in grades 3-5, compared to 43-50% statewide. Student subgroup performance also varies significantly, with African American and Hispanic students generally performing better than White students, but all subgroups well below state and district averages.

Converse Elementary has a high percentage of students from low-income families, with 62.91% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, significantly higher than the state average and nearby Judson ISD schools. The school's per-student spending of $8,673 in 2020-2021 is slightly lower than the nearby Judson ISD schools, which range from $8,178 to $9,455 per student. These challenges suggest that Converse Elementary and the Judson ISD as a whole may need to implement targeted interventions and strategies to address the academic and socioeconomic disparities faced by their students.

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.
