Chimborazo Elementary stands out for its significantly higher percentage of African American students (78.7%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 74.6% to 93.63% African American. Academically, the school's performance on SOL (Standards of Learning) tests is generally lower than state and district averages across various subjects and grade levels.

Chimborazo Elementary has consistently ranked in the bottom 10% of Virginia elementary schools, placing it in the lowest performance tier according to SchoolDigger.

While Chimborazo Elementary's performance is lower than state and district averages, it's worth noting that many nearby schools in the Richmond City Public Schools district also struggle academically, such as George W. Carver Elementary and Blackwell Elementary. The high percentage of economically disadvantaged students at Chimborazo Elementary, with 97.66% to 99.23% receiving free or reduced-price lunch, may be a significant factor contributing to the school's lower academic performance. Despite these challenges, Chimborazo Elementary has shown some signs of improvement in recent years, suggesting that with the right interventions and support, there may be opportunities for further progress.

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.
