Riverside Elementary

Summary:

Riverside Elementary is a public elementary school located in Ringle, Wisconsin, serving grades PK-5 with a student population of 490. The school is part of the D.C. Everest Area School District, which is ranked 150 out of 424 school districts in Wisconsin and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Riverside Elementary consistently outperforms the D.C. Everest Area School District and the state of Wisconsin in academic proficiency, ranking among the top 10% of Wisconsin elementary schools. The school has demonstrated strong performance across various student subgroups, including female students, male students, white students, and English Language Learners (ELL). Riverside Elementary's diverse student population includes a higher percentage of Asian students (10%) compared to the state average, and the school has maintained a relatively low chronic absenteeism rate, which is lower than the nearby schools in the Wausau School District.

Riverside Elementary's consistent academic excellence, equity in education, and low chronic absenteeism rate suggest that the school is providing a high-quality education to its diverse student population. While the school stands out as a high-performing institution in the region, there may be opportunities for further improvement, particularly in the areas of Asian student performance and special education student performance, where the school's rankings are not as strong as in other subgroups. Riverside Elementary's success can serve as a valuable case study for understanding the factors that contribute to effective and equitable education.

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.
