Barre Town Elementary & Middle School

Summary:

Barre Town Elementary & Middle School is a public school serving approximately 800 students in grades PK-8 in Barre, Vermont, which is part of the Barre Unified Union School District. While the school has a predominantly White student population, it has consistently underperformed the state average on standardized tests across grades and subjects, ranking in the lower half of Vermont elementary schools.

Barre Town Elementary & Middle School's academic performance is a concern, with proficiency rates below the state average in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science. The school's struggles are particularly pronounced among its low socioeconomic status students, ranking in the bottom 5 Vermont elementary schools in this category. However, the school performs relatively better in serving its special education students, ranking in the top half of Vermont elementary schools in this area. Compared to nearby schools, Barre Town Elementary & Middle School outperforms Barre City Elementary/Middle School, but lags behind higher-performing schools in the region, such as Calais Elementary School and East Montpelier Elementary School.

The school's challenges suggest that it may need to re-evaluate its curriculum, instructional practices, and professional development for teachers to better support student learning, particularly for its most vulnerable populations. Additionally, the school's relatively low percentage of free and reduced-price lunch recipients compared to nearby schools may indicate that the community it serves is more affluent, which could contribute to the academic performance gap between Barre Town and higher-performing schools in the region. Overall, Barre Town Elementary & Middle School faces significant hurdles in providing a high-quality education to its students, and targeted interventions and a comprehensive, data-driven approach to school improvement may be necessary to address these issues.

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.
