Hawthorne Elementary

Summary:

Hawthorne Elementary is a high-performing public elementary school in Beverly Hills Unified that serves 569 students in grades K-5. The school consistently ranks in the top 10% of California elementary schools, with exceptional academic achievement and low chronic absenteeism rates.

Hawthorne Elementary's academic performance is exceptional, with 74.52% of students scoring proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 46.66% statewide and 71.4% in the Beverly Hills Unified district. The school also performs exceptionally well across various student subgroups, including male students, White students, and students with disabilities. For example, Hawthorne ranked 321 out of 5,627 California elementary schools for male students and 188 out of 2,416 for students with disabilities.

While Hawthorne Elementary's high academic performance and low chronic absenteeism rates are commendable, the school's demographic makeup raises some equity concerns. Hawthorne has a significantly higher percentage of White students (66.96%) compared to nearby schools, such as Hancock Park Elementary, Horace Mann Elementary, and Rosewood Avenue Elementary, which tend to have more diverse student populations. This disparity may warrant further examination to ensure that all students have equal access to the school's exceptional educational opportunities.

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.
