Hazelgreen Elementary School

Summary:

Hazelgreen Elementary School is a public elementary school serving 274 students in grades K-6 in Alsip, Illinois. The school is part of the Alsip-Hazlgrn-Oaklwn School District 126, which is ranked 585 out of 823 districts in Illinois and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Hazelgreen Elementary has consistently underperformed compared to state and district averages on standardized tests, with only 9.3% to 51.4% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and 17.1% to 24.2% proficient in math across the grades. The school also struggles with high chronic absenteeism rates, reaching 26.7% in the 2022-2023 school year. These challenges may be linked to the school's high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 60.95% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. Despite spending significantly more per student ($16,246) than nearby Stony Creek Elementary ($12,733), Hazelgreen's academic performance has not improved.

Interestingly, Hazelgreen Elementary has a more diverse student population compared to some nearby schools, such as Kolmar Avenue Elementary and Ridge Lawn Elementary, which have a higher percentage of White students. Additionally, the school's Hispanic students perform relatively well compared to their peers in the state, ranking in the top 30% of Illinois elementary schools for this subgroup. However, the school's White students perform poorly, ranking in the bottom 30% of Illinois elementary schools. The challenges faced by Hazelgreen Elementary appear to be systemic within the Alsip-Hazlgrn-Oaklwn School District 126, as nearby schools like Lane Elementary and Stony Creek Elementary also struggle with low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism rates.

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.
