Liberty-Eylau Elementary

Summary:

Liberty-Eylau Elementary is a public elementary school serving 575 students in grades 1-4 in the Liberty-Eylau Independent School District in Texarkana, Texas. The school has a predominantly African American (54.26%) and White (27.83%) student population, with smaller percentages of Hispanic (7.13%) and students of two or more races (10.61%).

Liberty-Eylau Elementary has consistently underperformed compared to the state and its own district on STAAR tests, with only 34% of 3rd graders and 30% of 4th graders proficient or better in reading, and 47% of 3rd graders and 35% of 4th graders proficient or better in math. The school has been ranked in the bottom quartile of Texas elementary schools by SchoolDigger, with a 2-star rating out of 5. Performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with African American and Hispanic students generally performing better than their White and multi-racial peers, but all subgroups still lagging behind state averages. The school has a very high percentage of students (over 90%) who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

In contrast, nearby schools such as Margaret Fischer Davis Elementary and Martha & Josh Morriss Math & Engineering Elementary, which are part of the Pleasant Grove Independent School District and Texarkana Independent School District respectively, significantly outperform Liberty-Eylau Elementary on STAAR tests and have much higher school rankings. While Liberty-Eylau Elementary has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 14.5, the school's academic challenges suggest that factors other than staffing levels, such as curriculum, instruction, and school leadership, may be contributing to the school's performance issues.

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.
