John Marshall Elementary

Summary:

John Marshall Elementary is a public elementary school in Wausau, Wisconsin, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the Wausau School District. While the school has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, it faces several challenges, including lower academic performance, higher chronic absenteeism, and a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Academically, John Marshall Elementary's performance on the Forward Exam is generally lower than the Wausau School District and Wisconsin state averages across all grade levels. The school's statewide ranking has also steadily declined over the years, from a high of 215 out of 1,061 Wisconsin elementary schools in 2013-2014 to 689 out of 1,067 in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school's performance has been declining relative to other elementary schools in the state, particularly for male students and special education students.

Compared to nearby schools like Odyssey Elementary, South Mountain Elementary, and Rib Mountain Elementary, John Marshall Elementary has higher chronic absenteeism rates and a larger percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. These socioeconomic and attendance-related challenges may be contributing factors to the school's lower academic performance, and addressing these issues could be an important step in improving outcomes for its students.

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.
