Silver Hill Elementary School

Summary:

Silver Hill Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Haverhill, Massachusetts, serving 471 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the Haverhill school district, which is ranked 289 out of 356 districts in Massachusetts and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Despite having a higher percentage of Hispanic students (50.11%) compared to the state average (23.9%) and the nearby schools, Silver Hill Elementary outperforms the Haverhill district and the state average in several MCAS subject areas and grade levels. For example, in 2022-2023, Silver Hill had 35.91% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 28.05% for Haverhill and 42.29% for the state. In Mathematics, Silver Hill had 38.46% proficient or better, compared to 25.23% for Haverhill and 40.6% for the state. Additionally, Silver Hill is ranked higher than the nearby schools in the state, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger, compared to a 1-star rating for most of the nearby schools.

While Silver Hill's performance is impressive, particularly in supporting its diverse student population, the school still lags behind the state average in several areas. By learning from the strategies and practices of higher-performing schools in the state, Silver Hill Elementary can continue to enhance the educational experience and outcomes for its students. The school's relatively high spending per student ($15,333 in 2020-2021) and student-teacher ratio (11.7 in 2022-2023) may contribute to its better performance, but there is still room for improvement to reach higher levels of student achievement.

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.
