Rockfish Hoke Elementary

Summary:

Rockfish Hoke Elementary is a public elementary school in Raeford, North Carolina, serving 627 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Hoke County Schools district, which is ranked 160 out of 243 districts in the state.

Rockfish Hoke Elementary consistently outperforms the district and state in academic proficiency, with significantly higher scores in Mathematics, Reading, and Science compared to nearby schools. The school's diverse student population, with a balanced representation of White, African American, and Hispanic students, is another key strength. Rockfish Hoke Elementary also has a relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 13.4 to 14.0 over the past three years, which is lower than the nearby schools like Bill Hefner Elementary and E E Miller Elementary.

Despite its strong academic performance, Rockfish Hoke Elementary faces significant socioeconomic challenges, with nearly 100% of its students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. This high percentage of economically disadvantaged students is consistent across the Hoke County Schools district, indicating a broader challenge in the region. However, the school's exceptional performance, particularly in its diverse student subgroups, suggests that it could serve as a model for other schools in the area.

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.
