Summit Elementary is a public elementary school serving grades PK-4 in the Oconomowoc Area School District in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, with 467 students. The school has consistently been ranked among the top elementary schools in Wisconsin, with a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Summit Elementary students consistently outperform the state and district averages on the Forward Exam, a standardized test used in Wisconsin. In 2022-2023, 66.18% of 3rd graders and 63.86% of 4th graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 37.88% and 45.75% statewide, respectively. In mathematics, 86.76% of 3rd graders and 69.88% of 4th graders were proficient or better, compared to 48.79% and 46.47% statewide. Summit Elementary also has a higher percentage of non-white students (11.78%) compared to the surrounding Oconomowoc Area School District schools, which range from 6.76% to 13.99%. Additionally, the school has a lower chronic absenteeism rate (6.8%) compared to the district (9.6%) and state (13.6%) averages, and a lower percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (13.28%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 13.71% to 24.94%.

Summit Elementary's consistent high performance across multiple academic measures, low chronic absenteeism, and relatively low percentage of students from low-income families set it apart from the nearby schools in the Oconomowoc Area School District. However, the school's lack of racial diversity is an area that could be addressed to better reflect the diversity of the broader 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.
