Sheldon Elementary School

Summary:

Sheldon Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 335 students in grades PK-8 in Sheldon, Vermont, which is part of the Northern Mountain Valley Unified Union School District #85. While the school has a significantly higher percentage of white students compared to the state average and nearby schools like St. Albans City Elementary and Highgate Elementary, it consistently underperforms the state average on standardized tests across all grade levels and subject areas.

Sheldon Elementary School's academic performance is a concern, with only 19.35% of 3rd graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 48.91%. The school also struggles to support certain student subgroups, with male students and white students ranking in the bottom half of Vermont elementary schools in their respective categories. However, the school performs better with low socioeconomic status students, ranking in the top half of Vermont schools.

Compared to other schools in the Northern Mountain Valley Unified Union School District, such as Berkshire Elementary School and Bakersfield School, Sheldon Elementary School generally underperforms. Additionally, the school's statewide ranking has declined over the past three school years, suggesting it is falling behind its peers in academic performance. With a relatively high percentage of students from low-income families, Sheldon Elementary School may need to carefully evaluate how it allocates resources and support to ensure these students have the necessary tools to succeed academically.

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.
