Stuart Elementary

Summary:

Stuart Elementary is a public elementary school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, serving 256 students from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade. The school faces significant challenges, with consistently low academic performance, high chronic absenteeism, and a student population that comes from a predominantly low-income background.

Compared to surrounding schools, Stuart Elementary has a much higher percentage of Asian students (28.52%) and an extremely high rate of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (94.92%). Academically, the school struggles, with only 10% of 3rd graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, far below the Milwaukee School District (13.19%) and Wisconsin state (37.88%) averages. Additionally, Stuart Elementary has a chronic absenteeism rate of 49.8%, significantly higher than the surrounding schools, which range from 29.5% to 65.7%. The school consistently ranks in the bottom 10% of Wisconsin elementary schools, indicating a need for targeted interventions and support.

The challenges faced by Stuart Elementary are not unique, as nearby charter schools like Milwaukee Scholars Charter School and Darrell Lynn Hines Academy also struggle with low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism rates. This suggests that the issues at Stuart Elementary may be systemic within the Milwaukee School District, requiring a collaborative approach to address the unique needs of the students and the school community.

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.
