Annandale Terrace Elementary stands out for its significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (53.12%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 11.49% to 61.24% Hispanic students. The school also has a lower percentage of White students (13.28%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 22.49% to 60.6% White students. Academically, the school consistently ranks in the bottom 10-15% of Virginia elementary schools, with a 1-star rating in recent years. Its performance on SOL (Standards of Learning) tests is significantly lower than the Fairfax County and Virginia state averages across all grade levels and subject areas.

When compared to nearby schools, such as Columbia Elementary, which has a higher percentage of White and Asian students, Annandale Terrace Elementary consistently underperforms on academic measures, despite having a lower student-teacher ratio. This suggests that factors beyond just staffing and funding may be contributing to the school's challenges. The high percentage of economically disadvantaged students and the school's low academic performance indicate that Annandale Terrace Elementary may have significant needs in areas such as targeted academic interventions, social-emotional support, and family engagement programs.

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.
