Aiea Elementary School

Summary:

Aiea Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-6 in Aiea, Hawaii, with a student population of 289. The school is part of the Hawaii Department of Education district, which is ranked 1 out of 1 in the state and rated 5 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Despite being part of a highly-ranked district, Aiea Elementary School consistently ranks in the bottom half of Hawaii elementary schools, scoring 0 or 1 out of 5 stars from SchoolDigger. The school has significantly lower proficiency rates compared to the state averages, with just 31% proficiency in ELA and 16% in Math, compared to 49-55% and 39-52% statewide, respectively. This low academic performance may be linked to the school's high percentage of economically disadvantaged students, ranging from 74.74% to 80.92% over the past 3 years, significantly higher than nearby schools like Red Hill Elementary, Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary, and Pearl Ridge Elementary, which perform significantly better and rank in the top 25-50% of Hawaii elementary schools.

Aiea Elementary School's diverse student population, with a majority of Pacific Islander students (58.82%) and significant percentages of Hispanic (13.84%) and Asian (13.84%) students, presents an opportunity for the school and district to implement targeted interventions and support programs to address the unique needs of this population and improve academic outcomes. Comparing Aiea Elementary to its neighboring schools highlights the significant differences in performance and student demographics, which can guide the development of tailored strategies to support the specific needs of Aiea Elementary School.

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.
