Allen Creek Elementary School

Summary:

Allen Creek Elementary School is a public elementary school in Marysville, Washington, serving 428 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Marysville School District, which is ranked 192 out of 249 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Allen Creek Elementary has a relatively diverse student population, with 46.73% White, 25.47% Hispanic, 7.71% Asian, and 14.25% two or more races. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by SBAC and WCAS test scores, is generally lower than the state averages and the performance of some nearby schools, such as Sunnyside Elementary and Pinewood Elementary. Allen Creek's statewide ranking has also declined over the years, from a high of 475 out of 1,097 Washington elementary schools in 2011-2012 to a ranking of 748 out of 1,169 in 2022-2023.

The school's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with Hispanic students performing relatively well and White students performing poorly. Additionally, Allen Creek has a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at 50% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the state average and suggests a potential correlation between socioeconomic status and academic performance. Despite these challenges, the school's diverse student population and the strong performance of certain subgroups suggest that there may be opportunities for improvement through targeted interventions and support.

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 A wonderful elementary school in Marysville! My two children are very happy to be attending Allen Creek. There is a new principal and the school is very organized and clean, you can immediately see it's managed well. The office staff is helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The teachers are wonderful, probably the best teachers in the area. Our family has had only the finest experience here. Close Quote

Open Quote The Principal does not believe in making students accountable for their behavior. He does not believe in having chronic bullies serve consequences for their behavior, nor having any misbehaving student serve any kind of consequence for misbehaviors except for the state mandated ones, like bringing weapons to school. I don't think the school is safe and the staff has low morale. The whole environment feel hostile. 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.
