Havens Elementary

Summary:

Havens Elementary is a high-performing public elementary school in Piedmont, California, serving 439 students in grades K-5. The school is part of the Piedmont City Unified School District, which is ranked 49th out of 1,560 districts in the state and has a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Havens Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in California, with 84.5% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and 87.5% proficient or better in Mathematics, significantly higher than the state averages. The school's diverse student population is 54.44% White, 18% Asian, and 17.08% multi-racial, which differs notably from the nearby Oakland Unified School District schools. Havens Elementary also maintains a low chronic absenteeism rate and a very low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of student engagement and an affluent student population.

The exceptional academic performance and unique student demographics of Havens Elementary highlight the significant educational disparities between the Piedmont and Oakland communities, which are in close proximity to each other. While Havens Elementary has established effective educational practices and a strong learning environment, the school's low percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients and the racial composition of the student population may raise questions about equity and access to high-quality education for students from diverse socioeconomic and racial backgrounds.

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.
