Richmond Elementary

Summary:

Richmond Elementary is a public school serving 407 students in grades PK-8 in the affluent community of Sussex, Wisconsin. The school is part of the highly-ranked Richmond School District, which is ranked 22nd out of 424 districts in the state.

Richmond Elementary is a standout institution, consistently ranking among the top elementary schools in Wisconsin with a statewide ranking between 32nd and 125th out of over 1,000 schools. Its students perform exceptionally well on state assessments, with proficiency rates significantly higher than the state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. The school also boasts very low dropout rates and chronic absenteeism, indicating strong student engagement and retention. However, the student population at Richmond Elementary is significantly less diverse compared to nearby schools, with over 90% of students being White, and the school serves a relatively affluent community, with only 1-2% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

When comparing Richmond Elementary to the nearby schools, such as Willow Springs Learning Center, Meadowbrook Elementary, and North Elementary, it stands out as a high-performing institution with stronger academic outcomes and lower rates of chronic absenteeism and dropout. However, the lack of racial diversity and socioeconomic homogeneity at Richmond Elementary may be areas for the school to consider addressing to promote greater inclusivity and equity.

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.
