Best Public Schools in Bow, WA


The city of Bow, Washington is home to two elementary schools, Allen Elementary and Edison Elementary, both part of the Burlington-Edison School District. While both schools serve students in the same district, the data reveals a stark contrast in their academic performance and overall quality.

Edison Elementary stands out as the higher-performing school, ranking 332 out of 1,169 Washington elementary schools with a 4-star rating. Its students significantly outperform the district and state averages on standardized tests, with 66.67% of 4th graders proficient or better in English Language Arts compared to 31.93% for the district and 50.11% statewide. Allen Elementary, on the other hand, is ranked 1,118 out of 1,169 schools with a 0-star rating, and its students lag behind their peers at Edison Elementary and the broader district and state.

The differences between the two schools extend beyond test scores. Allen Elementary has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (83.42%) compared to Edison Elementary (36.84%), and its student population is predominantly Hispanic (63.61%), while Edison Elementary is predominantly white (78.95%). These demographic and socioeconomic factors may contribute to the performance gap, though the similar per-student spending levels suggest that funding alone does not explain the divergent outcomes.
