Nathan Hale Intermediate

Summary:

Nathan Hale Intermediate is a public elementary school serving grades 4-5 in Crestwood, Illinois, with a student population of 195. The school faces significant challenges, with low test scores, high chronic absenteeism, and a high proportion of economically disadvantaged students.

Nathan Hale Intermediate's test scores are significantly below the state averages in both English Language Arts and Mathematics, with only 20-25% of 4th and 5th graders proficient or better in ELA, compared to 35% statewide, and even lower proficiency rates in Math. The school also struggles with high chronic absenteeism, reaching 19.4% in the 2022-2023 school year, significantly higher than the state average. Additionally, a large majority (78.97%) of the school's students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

When compared to nearby schools, such as Lane Elementary School, Nathan Hale Intermediate generally performs worse on key metrics like test scores and chronic absenteeism. The school's performance also varies significantly across different student subgroups, with the school ranking relatively well for its Hispanic and English Language Learner students, but struggling with its White and Special Education student populations. Despite the relatively high spending per student at $21,386 in 2022-2023, the school's academic outcomes remain poor, suggesting that simply spending more money may not be the solution to the school's challenges.

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.
