Fairfield Elementary Academy

Summary:

Fairfield Elementary Academy is a public elementary school serving grades PK-8 in Chicago, Illinois, with a student population of 456. The school is part of the City of Chicago School District 299, which is ranked 711 out of 823 districts in Illinois and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Fairfield Elementary Academy stands out for several key reasons. It has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (81.36%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 22.12% to 96.45% Hispanic students. Academically, the school consistently ranks in the bottom 10% of Illinois elementary schools, with 0 out of 5 SchoolDigger stars for the past several years. Its proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics are significantly lower than the district and state averages across all grade levels. Additionally, Fairfield Elementary Academy has experienced high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 28.3% to 47.5% over the past few years, which is significantly higher than the surrounding schools like Carson Elementary and Talman Elementary. The school also has an extremely high percentage of students (98.25%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

While Fairfield Elementary Academy and the surrounding schools are all part of the same district and serve similar demographics, there are notable differences in academic performance and other key metrics. For example, schools like Carson Elementary and Talman Elementary, which are within a mile of Fairfield, have significantly higher proficiency rates and SchoolDigger ratings compared to Fairfield. This suggests that Fairfield Elementary Academy may be facing systemic challenges that have not been adequately addressed, and addressing the underlying causes of chronic absenteeism and supporting the school's economically disadvantaged population could be key focus areas for improvement.

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.
