Paul Revere Intermediate School

Summary:

Paul Revere Intermediate School is a public elementary school serving grades 4-5 in Blue Island, Illinois, with a student population of 195 that is predominantly Hispanic (64.1%) and African American (27.18%). The school faces significant academic and socioeconomic challenges, as evidenced by its consistently low performance on standardized tests and high chronic absenteeism rate.

Academically, Paul Revere Intermediate School underperforms compared to the state and Cook County School District 130 averages. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 15.1% of 4th graders and 35.7% of 5th graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to the state averages of 35.4% and 35.2%, respectively. In mathematics, the proficiency rates were even lower, with only 9.4% of 4th graders and 8.3% of 5th graders meeting or exceeding standards, compared to the state averages of 27.7% and 25.6%. The school's chronic absenteeism rate of 24.5% is also significantly higher than the state and district averages.

Socioeconomic factors may play a role in the school's challenges, as 91.28% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, significantly higher than the state average of 48.1%. Interestingly, the nearby Lincoln Elementary School, George Washington Elementary School, and Whittier Elementary School also struggle with low academic performance and high chronic absenteeism, suggesting systemic challenges within the Cook County School District 130. Addressing these issues will require a multifaceted approach, including targeted interventions, community engagement, and a district-wide focus on improving educational outcomes for all students.

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.
