Bryn Mawr Elementary School

Summary:

Bryn Mawr Elementary School is a public elementary school in Seattle, Washington, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school has a diverse student population and is part of the Renton School District, which is ranked 139 out of 249 districts in the state.

Academically, Bryn Mawr Elementary School has consistently underperformed compared to the district and state. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 38.1% of students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, and 30.69% were proficient in math, both significantly below the district and state averages. The school has a low statewide ranking, placing in the bottom third of Washington elementary schools, and its performance varies significantly across different student subgroups. For example, the school's African American and English Language Learner students have performed relatively better, while Hispanic, low socioeconomic status, and female students have struggled.

Despite the school's academic challenges, it has relatively high spending per student, at $20,579 in the 2021-2022 school year. This is significantly higher than the state average, but the school's performance remains below par. The high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, as well as the school's location in a lower-income area, may be contributing factors to the academic challenges. Interestingly, Bryn Mawr Elementary School is located in close proximity to several other elementary schools in the Renton School District, some of which, like Kennydale Elementary School, are performing significantly better academically.

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 My experience with the school district has been very disturbing to a mother with a child who has a disability.

I'm shocked at the lack of concern and resources RSD has to offer.

I've been pro-active in all communications and meetings for my child.

My daughter has been singled out and out in a corner on a non student desk pictures taken without permission and lack of in school resources.

My child's 1st year of school has been a roller coaster and im afraid for what next year will bring.
ive reached out to the school district several times and im still not satisfied with the lack of empathy and action that has been taken to ensure my child has access to a good education.

Im not confident in my issues being solved by the Renton School District. 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.
