Summary:

Richmond Elementary School is a public elementary school serving around 370 students in grades PK-4 in Richmond, Vermont. The school consistently performs above the state average on standardized tests and has a strong statewide ranking, placing 24th out of 113 Vermont elementary schools in the 2022-2023 school year.

Richmond Elementary School's academic performance is particularly impressive, with 55.56% of 3rd graders and 65.96% of 4th graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state averages of 48.91% and 56.41%, respectively. In mathematics, 50.91% of 3rd graders and 40.43% of 4th graders were proficient or better, compared to the state averages of 37.19% and 34.9%. The school's strong performance extends to specific student subgroups, ranking 9th out of 46 Vermont elementary schools for male students and 34th out of 133 for white students.

While Richmond Elementary School outperforms the state averages, it is not the highest-performing school in its immediate vicinity. Nearby schools like Hinesburg Community School and Williston Schools also have strong academic records and higher statewide rankings. Additionally, the school's predominantly white student body and low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (9.73%) may raise questions about equity and access to educational resources for students from lower-income families within the Mount Mansfield Unified Union School District #401.

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.
