Meadow View Elementary consistently ranks among the top Wisconsin elementary schools, with students performing exceptionally well on the Forward Exam, significantly outperforming their peers at the state and district levels. However, the school has a predominantly white student population, with over 92% of students identifying as white, and a relatively low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, suggesting a more affluent student population. The school's chronic absenteeism rate has fluctuated in recent years, ranging from 1.4% to 12.2%, which may warrant further investigation.

When compared to nearby schools in the Oconomowoc Area School District, Meadow View Elementary's academic performance is generally on par with or slightly higher than other district elementary schools, such as Summit Elementary and Park Lawn Elementary. However, Greenland Elementary also performs well academically and has a slightly more diverse student population, with higher percentages of minority students. The socioeconomic homogeneity of Meadow View Elementary and its nearby counterparts suggests the need to address issues of diversity and equity within the district.

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.
