Nash Elementary

Summary:

Nash Elementary is a public elementary school serving 677 students in grades PK-5 in the Texarkana Independent School District (ISD) in Texas. The school has a diverse student population, with a roughly even split between White, African American, and Hispanic students.

While Nash Elementary has seen fluctuations in its academic performance, with a 4-star rating in 2020-2021 that has since dropped to a 2-star rating, the school faces several challenges. It has a high percentage of students from low-income families, with 86.12% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, and its spending per student is lower than some nearby schools, such as Martha & Josh Morriss Math & Engineering Elementary. Additionally, Nash Elementary's student-teacher ratio of 15.9 is higher than nearby schools like Westlawn Elementary and Theron Jones Early Literacy Center.

Interestingly, while Nash Elementary has a diverse student population, some nearby schools, such as Martha & Josh Morriss Math & Engineering Elementary and Waggoner Creek Elementary, have a more skewed racial makeup, with a higher percentage of White students. Additionally, Nash Elementary's academic performance, as measured by STAAR test scores, varies significantly across different student subgroups, with White students outperforming their African American and Hispanic peers in both reading and math. This suggests the presence of achievement gaps that may need to be addressed.

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.
