Springbrook Elementary School

Summary:

Springbrook Elementary School is a public elementary school in Kent, Washington, serving students from pre-kindergarten to 6th grade. With a diverse student population, the school faces significant challenges in academic performance, consistently ranking in the bottom half of Washington elementary schools.

Springbrook Elementary's academic performance, as measured by state assessments, is significantly below the state and Kent School District averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, only 32.86% of Springbrook students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 52.86% statewide and 48.08% in the district. In math, only 27.83% of Springbrook students were proficient or better, compared to 41.04% statewide and 35.72% in the district. The school's student subgroups, such as female, male, Asian, African American, Hispanic, and English Language Learners, also perform significantly below their peers in the state and district.

While Springbrook Elementary has a relatively high per-student spending of $19,979 in the 2021-2022 school year, its academic performance is significantly lower than that of nearby schools in the Kent School District, such as Lake Youngs Elementary and Sunrise Elementary, which rank much higher in the state and have significantly higher proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math. The school's high percentage of low-income students and diverse racial/ethnic makeup may be contributing factors to its lower academic performance.

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.

Open Quote Springbrook has made significant changes over the past two years. Staff have high expectations for students in a safe and welcoming learning environment. Close Quote

Open Quote This school sucks, They lack funds and leadership. Too much time and money being spent on getting non English speaking students up to grade. while the English speaking students are not receiving a well rounded education. Their failure to provide life sciences, social studies, and humanities makes them very low ranking to me. I feel this school puts too much emphasis on teaching to standardized test than to actually creating a fun positive learning environment that kids want to learn in. Not only that this school utilized harsh and unreasonable behavior management strategies. this is noted by incidents of children being handcuffed in elementary school. Close Quote

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.
