RHAM High School

Summary:

RHAM High School is a public high school located in Hebron, Connecticut, serving grades 9-12 and part of the Regional School District 08. With a student population of 819, the school is known for its consistently strong academic performance, ranking among the top high schools in the state.

RHAM High School's academic excellence is evident in its statewide ranking of 34 out of 142 schools and a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's performance is particularly impressive, with 73.6% of 11th-grade students proficient or better in SAT/English Language Arts and 51.8% proficient or better in SAT/Math, significantly higher than the state averages of 52.4% and 34.1%, respectively. The school's success extends to specific student groups, with RHAM High School ranking 9th out of 189 Connecticut high schools for female students, 12th out of 182 for male students, and 14th out of 155 for White students in 2020-2021.

While RHAM High School's academic achievements are noteworthy, the school's racial diversity is significantly lower than nearby schools like Manchester High School and Windham High School, with a student population that is predominantly White (87.18% in 2022-2023). This lack of diversity may be a limiting factor in the educational experience of its students. However, the school's relatively low spending per student ($17,902 in 2018-2019) compared to the state average suggests that it is effectively allocating its resources to support student learning, as evidenced by its small student-to-teacher ratio of 8.9.

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.
