Janssen Elementary

Summary:

Janssen Elementary is a public elementary school located in Combined Locks, Wisconsin, serving grades K-4 with a total enrollment of 385 students. It is part of the Kimberly Area School District, which is ranked 41 out of 424 school districts in Wisconsin and is rated 5 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Janssen Elementary consistently ranks in the top 25% of Wisconsin elementary schools, with a statewide ranking between 156 and 445 over the past 10 years. The school's performance on the Forward Exam is generally above the state and district averages, particularly in mathematics and social studies. For example, in 2022-2023, 59.55% of 3rd-grade students and 58.67% of 4th-grade students were proficient or better in mathematics, compared to the state averages of 48.79% and 46.47%, respectively. Additionally, Janssen Elementary has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (around 24%), and its low socioeconomic status students perform exceptionally well, ranking in the top 10% of Wisconsin elementary schools in this category in 2021-2022.

While Janssen Elementary's performance is generally stronger than the nearby Westside Elementary and Sunrise Elementary, the Flex Academy, a public charter virtual school, also demonstrates strong academic performance, with several grade levels achieving 100% proficiency in certain subjects. However, Janssen Elementary's lack of racial diversity, with only around 13% of students being non-white, may be an area for the school to consider addressing, as research suggests that diverse learning environments can provide benefits for all students.

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.
