Elementary Schools in North Plainfield School District


The North Plainfield School District in New Jersey is home to three elementary schools: West End School, East End School, and Stony Brook School. These schools serve students from pre-kindergarten through 4th grade and are part of a district that is ranked 568 out of 615 in the state and rated 0 out of 5 stars by SchoolDigger, indicating it is a low-performing district.

Among the three elementary schools, Stony Brook School stands out as having the highest percentage of Hispanic students (84.86%) and the highest percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (81.67%). Additionally, Stony Brook School has the lowest student-teacher ratio at 9.2, suggesting a focus on smaller class sizes. However, despite the higher per-student spending at Stony Brook School, it has the lowest academic proficiency rates in both English Language Arts and Mathematics, with only 17.3% and 4.4% of 4th-grade students proficient or better, respectively.

In contrast, West End School has the highest proficiency rates among the three schools, with 25.5% and 28.5% of 3rd and 4th-grade students proficient or better in ELA, and 23.4% and 13.8% in Math. However, all three schools perform below the state average in both subjects, highlighting the need for targeted interventions and support to address the underlying challenges faced by these students, such as high rates of chronic absenteeism and significant racial and socioeconomic disparities.
