Golden Hill has a diverse student population, with 47.58% White, 44.63% Hispanic, and 3.79% African American students. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by MCAS Next Generation test scores, is generally lower than the state and district averages. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 25.54% of Golden Hill students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 28.05% in the Haverhill district and 42.29% statewide. Similarly, in mathematics, 30.6% of Golden Hill students were proficient or better, compared to 25.23% in the district and 40.6% statewide. Golden Hill has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Massachusetts elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years.

Interestingly, Golden Hill's performance on MCAS tests varies significantly across different student groups. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, Hispanic students at Golden Hill ranked 260 out of 420 Massachusetts elementary schools in English Language Arts, while White students ranked 585 out of 762 schools. This suggests that the school may need to address equity and opportunity gaps within the student population. Nearby schools, such as Caleb Dustin Hunking School, have higher academic achievement and better rankings, which could provide opportunities for Golden Hill to learn from their practices and strategies.

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.
