Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School

Summary:

Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School is a public elementary school serving grades K-8 in North Haven, Connecticut, which is part of the Area Cooperative Educational Services (ACES) district. The school has a diverse student population, with a racial makeup that is predominantly African American and Hispanic.

Despite its diverse student body, Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School consistently performs below the state and North Haven School District averages on standardized tests. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics are significantly lower than the state and ACES district averages across all grade levels. Additionally, Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School has consistently ranked in the bottom quartile of Connecticut elementary schools, maintaining a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's performance is particularly concerning for African American students and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, who rank in the bottom 15-17 and 69 out of 72 schools, respectively.

Interestingly, the nearby schools, such as Ridge Road Elementary, Spring Glen School, and Clintonville Elementary, consistently outperform Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School on academic measures, despite the fact that Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School has a higher per-student spending level compared to these schools. This suggests that the challenges faced by Wintergreen Interdistrict Magnet School may require targeted interventions and additional resources to address the underlying issues and improve educational outcomes for its students.

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.

Open Quote This school is not safe. Do not send your child here! Close Quote

Open Quote As an elementary school it's great. Although it's a little bit unnecessarily strict (like no bringing in candy for Valentine's day or Halloween) the education is great and I felt like I got a much better education than I would have at the town's public schools and a lot of technological experience.

However, as a middle school (7-8 grade) the education is still above par but it didn't feel like anything had changed. There were no school sports or after school programs.(we did have school dances) We had been around the same people all our life (very little bullying) so we were academically prepared for high school but not socially.

All in all it is a great school (with a great library for such a small school) and I would recommend you applying your child. Close Quote

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.
