Moulton Elementary

Summary:

Moulton Elementary is a public elementary school serving grades PK-6 in the Moulton Independent School District (ISD) in Moulton, Texas, with 166 students and a student-teacher ratio of 11.9. The school has shown strong academic performance, particularly in reading and mathematics, but faces challenges in maintaining its statewide ranking and addressing disparities in the performance of certain student subgroups.

Moulton Elementary has outperformed the state average in the percentage of students proficient or better in STAAR Reading for grades 5 and 6, as well as STAAR Mathematics for grade 5. However, the school has underperformed the state average in STAAR Reading and Mathematics for grades 3 and 4. The school has also excelled in serving its special education students, ranking 64th out of 3,799 Texas elementary schools in 2020-2021 for this student group. Despite these strengths, Moulton Elementary's statewide ranking has declined over the years, from a high of 352nd out of 4,221 Texas elementary schools in 2012-2013 to 1,579th out of 4,647 in 2022-2023.

Compared to nearby schools, Moulton Elementary's academic performance is generally stronger than Gonzales North Avenue and Schulenburg Elementary, but weaker than Sweet Home Elementary and Flatonia Elementary. Additionally, Moulton Elementary has struggled with the academic achievement of female students, Hispanic students, and students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, all of which have lower rankings and proficiency rates compared to their peers.

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.
