S. A. Hull Elementary School

Summary:

S. A. Hull Elementary School is a public elementary school in Jacksonville, Florida, serving grades PK-5 with a student population of 152. The school is part of the Duval School District, which is ranked 52 out of 67 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

S. A. Hull Elementary stands out from the surrounding schools in several key ways. The school has a significantly higher percentage of African American students (87.5%) compared to nearby schools, which range from 48.5% to 94.93% African American. S. A. Hull also consistently struggles with high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 36.7% to 58.0% over the past few years, significantly higher than the 33.3% to 69.5% range of its peers. Academically, the school's test scores are consistently lower than the Duval district and Florida state averages across all grade levels and subjects, with only 12% of 5th-grade students proficient or better in Science, compared to 48% in Duval and 51% statewide.

Despite having the highest spending per student, ranging from $9,631 to $14,390, among the nearby schools, which include Northwestern Legends Elementary, Biltmore Elementary School, and others, S. A. Hull Elementary's academic performance remains significantly below the district and state averages. This raises questions about the effectiveness of the school's resource allocation and the need to ensure that funding is being used in the most impactful way to support student learning.

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.
