Hamtramck Academy

Summary:

Hamtramck Academy is a public charter elementary school serving grades K-8 in the diverse city of Hamtramck, Michigan. With a student population that is majority Asian (66.42%) and significant percentages of White (14.42%) and African American (10.95%) students, the school stands out for its academic performance and ability to effectively serve traditionally underperforming student populations.

Hamtramck Academy consistently outperforms the state average on M-Step assessments, with higher proficiency rates than the state in English Language Arts for grades 3-7 and in Math for grades 3, 5, 6, and 7. The school also ranks highly among Michigan elementary schools for its performance with English Language Learner students and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, suggesting it is doing an excellent job of supporting these students. While the school has seen an increase in chronic absenteeism, reaching 27.6% in 2022-2023, this rate is still lower than the nearby Caniff Liberty Academy (54.9%) and Dickinson West Elementary School (58.7%), indicating Hamtramck Academy is doing a better job of keeping students engaged and attending school.

While Hamtramck Academy outperforms the nearby Hamtramck School District schools on most metrics, it lags behind some of the other charter schools in the area, such as Bridge Academy East, in terms of overall state rankings and proficiency rates. This suggests there may be opportunities for Hamtramck Academy to learn from the practices of these higher-performing schools. Additionally, the significant increase in chronic absenteeism at Hamtramck Academy is a concerning trend that the school should address to improve student engagement and academic outcomes.

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.
