Lovell Elementary

Summary:

Lovell Elementary is a public elementary school in Lovell, Wyoming, serving 308 students in grades K-5 and part of the Big Horn County School District #2, which is ranked 10th out of 42 districts in the state.

Lovell Elementary has a unique demographic profile, with a significantly higher percentage of white students (87.99%) compared to nearby schools. The school's performance has fluctuated over the years, ranging from 18th to 105th out of Wyoming's elementary schools, with its most recent ranking at 71st and a 3-star rating. While the school's test scores are generally on par with or slightly above district and state averages, there are notable disparities in the performance of different student subgroups, with female and white students outperforming their male and Hispanic counterparts. Lovell Elementary also has a relatively high per-student spending of $17,162 and a low student-teacher ratio of 12:1, which may contribute to its performance.

Interestingly, the nearby schools in the Park County School District #1, such as Southside Elementary, Parkside Elementary, and Westside Elementary, consistently outperform Lovell Elementary, particularly in English Language Arts and Mathematics. This suggests that there may be opportunities for Lovell Elementary to learn from the practices and strategies employed by these higher-performing schools and address the achievement gaps within its own student population.

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.
