North Hillsborough

Summary:

North Hillsborough is an exceptional elementary school in Hillsborough, California, serving 264 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. Part of the highly-ranked Hillsborough City Elementary School District, North Hillsborough consistently performs among the top schools in the state, with a predominantly White (51.14%) and Asian (32.58%) student population.

North Hillsborough's students demonstrate exceptional academic achievement, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics that significantly exceed state and district averages. The school also maintains low chronic absenteeism rates and provides equitable outcomes across student subgroups, including female, male, Asian, and White students. With a low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (1.89% to 4.63%), North Hillsborough serves a relatively affluent community, which is often correlated with strong academic performance.

Compared to nearby schools like Lincoln Elementary, Baywood Elementary, and Franklin Elementary, North Hillsborough consistently outperforms its peers in academic achievement, chronic absenteeism, and student-teacher ratio. While North Hillsborough is an exceptional school, there may be opportunities for further improvement, such as addressing slightly higher chronic absenteeism rates in recent years or exploring ways to support the academic growth of students in lower-performing subgroups.

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.
