Pomfret Community School

Summary:

Pomfret Community School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-8 in the rural town of Pomfret Center, Connecticut. With a student population of 370, the school consistently outperforms the state average on standardized tests across all grade levels and subjects, making it a standout in the region.

Pomfret Community School's academic performance is particularly impressive, with 70.7% of 3rd graders, 71.1% of 4th graders, and 76.2% of 7th graders proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state averages of 45.5%, 48.8%, and 48.8%, respectively. In mathematics, 73.8% of 7th graders and 57.4% of 8th graders were proficient or better, far exceeding the state averages of 39.9% and 36.2%. The school's relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 10.5 to 12.8 over the past three years, may contribute to its strong academic results.

While Pomfret Community School's academic performance is noteworthy, it is important to consider the broader educational landscape in the region. Nearby schools, such as Hampton Elementary School and Eastford Elementary School, also demonstrate strong academic performance and low student-teacher ratios. Additionally, Pomfret Community School's student population is predominantly White (93.51% in 2022-2023), which may reflect the demographics of the local Hampton School District. Understanding the broader context and comparing Pomfret Community School to its peers can provide valuable insights for parents considering educational options for their children.

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.
