Hopewell School

Summary:

Hopewell School is an exemplary elementary school located in South Glastonbury, Connecticut, serving 470 students in grades K-4. As part of the highly-ranked Glastonbury School District, Hopewell consistently performs among the top elementary schools in the state.

Hopewell School's academic performance is truly exceptional, with 64.2% and 70.8% of 3rd and 4th graders, respectively, scoring proficient or better in English Language Arts, significantly outpacing the state average. In mathematics, an impressive 81.7% and 79.8% of 3rd and 4th graders scored proficient or better, again well above the state benchmarks. The school's diverse student population, with 63.19% White, 18.3% Asian, 8.94% Hispanic, and 1.91% African American students, is noteworthy, especially when compared to nearby schools like Nayaug Elementary School (73.55% White) and Hebron Avenue School (66.59% White).

Hopewell School's exceptional performance extends beyond just test scores. The school has a very low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, at only 5.96%, significantly lower than the nearby Naubuc School (29.82%) and the state average. This suggests that Hopewell serves a relatively affluent community, which may contribute to its high academic outcomes. However, the school's strategies for supporting students from lower-income families and ensuring equitable access to resources would be an interesting area to explore further.

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.
