The school stands out for its strong academic performance, particularly in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science, where it consistently outperforms the district and state averages. However, the school faces challenges in supporting its diverse student population, especially its English Language Learner (ELL) and Special Education students.

Caleb Dustin Hunking School's academic performance is a key strength, with proficiency rates in 2022-2023 that were higher than the Haverhill district and the state in ELA (34.6% vs. 28.05% and 42.29%), Math (35.47% vs. 25.23% and 40.6%), and Science (33.33% vs. 30.35% and 41.22%).

When compared to nearby schools in the Haverhill district, Caleb Dustin Hunking School generally outperforms them in academic assessments, particularly in Mathematics. Schools like Silver Hill Elementary School and Bradford Elementary have shown stronger performance in certain grade levels and subject areas. Additionally, the school has seen a decline in its White student population over the past three years, with a corresponding increase in Hispanic students, which may impact its overall performance and consistency.

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.
