Lizemore Elementary School

Summary:

Lizemore Elementary School is a public elementary school in Lizemores, West Virginia, serving 105 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Clay County Schools district, which is ranked 38 out of 55 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating.

Lizemore Elementary School faces significant academic challenges, with consistently lower proficiency rates in Mathematics and English Language Arts compared to the state and district averages. For example, the 3rd-grade proficiency rate in Mathematics was 37.5% at Lizemore, compared to 50.7% for the Clay County Schools district and 51.6% for the state. The school has also seen a significant decline in its statewide ranking, dropping from 21st out of 408 West Virginia elementary schools in 2014-2015 to 283rd out of 368 in the most recent 2022-2023 school year. Additionally, Lizemore Elementary School has consistently lower rankings for specific student groups, such as male students, white students, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, compared to the state averages.

While Lizemore Elementary School is part of the same district as Clay Elementary School and H.E. White Elementary School, it consistently performs worse academically and has a lower statewide ranking. This suggests that there may be significant differences in the resources, teaching quality, or other factors that contribute to the academic success of these schools. The school's lack of diversity, with a significantly higher percentage of white students compared to the surrounding schools, and lower funding per student compared to nearby schools may also be contributing factors to the academic challenges faced by Lizemore Elementary School.

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.
