Hueytown High School

Summary:

Hueytown High School is a public high school in Hueytown, Alabama, serving 1,210 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Jefferson County school district, which is ranked 97 out of 134 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Over the past few years, the racial makeup of Hueytown High School has become more diverse, with a decrease in white students and an increase in Hispanic students.

Academically, Hueytown High School consistently underperforms compared to the state and county averages on standardized tests. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 4.96% of 11th-grade students were proficient or better in Mathematics, compared to 11.8% in the Jefferson County district and 24.39% statewide. The school's performance in Science (13.52% proficient) and English (15.07% proficient) for 11th-grade students also lags behind the district and state averages. Additionally, Hueytown High School's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with lower rankings for African American, Hispanic, and English Language Learner students.

Hueytown High School faces several other challenges, including a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (78.68% in 2022-2023), suggesting a high concentration of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds. The school's spending per student ($8,484 in 2018-2019) is also lower than nearby schools like Pleasant Grove High School ($9,862) and Oak Grove High School ($9,230). These factors, combined with the school's declining statewide ranking over the past decade, indicate that Hueytown High School may need to implement targeted interventions and support to address its unique challenges and improve student outcomes.

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.
