Calumet Public School District 132


The Calumet Public School District 132 in Illinois operates 3 schools: 2 elementary schools (Burr Oak Elementary School and Burr Oak Academy) and 1 middle school (Calumet Elementary School). The district serves a predominantly minority student population, with the majority of students being African American and Hispanic.

Among the standout schools, Burr Oak Academy has the lowest percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch and the lowest chronic absenteeism rate, though it still remains quite high. Calumet Elementary School, on the other hand, has the highest percentage of African American students and the highest spending per student, but also the lowest statewide ranking among the three schools.

The academic performance of the schools in the district is generally low, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science well below the state averages. The high chronic absenteeism rates and the significant socioeconomic challenges faced by the student population may be contributing factors to the poor academic outcomes. Overall, the Calumet Public School District 132 is struggling to provide a high-quality education and needs to implement comprehensive strategies to address the underlying issues and better serve its students.
