Fairview Elementary School

Summary:

Fairview Elementary School is a public elementary school in Bloomfield, New Jersey, serving students from pre-kindergarten to 6th grade. With a diverse student population, the school is part of the Bloomfield Township School District, which is ranked 293 out of 615 school districts in the state.

While Fairview Elementary School's performance on the NJSLA tests is generally below the district and state averages, the school has some notable strengths. Its African American and Hispanic student subgroups outperform the school's overall performance and, in some cases, the district and state averages. For example, the school's African American students ranked 137 out of 463 New Jersey elementary schools in English Language Arts, with a 4-star rating. However, the school's overall proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics range from 35.2% to 59.4% and 25.4% to 54.4%, respectively, compared to the district averages of 50.6% to 61.8% and 33.1% to 49%.

Another area of concern for Fairview Elementary School is the increase in chronic absenteeism, from 6.4% in 2020-2021 to 14.4% in 2021-2022, which is higher than the district's average of 9.6% in 2018-2019. Additionally, the school has a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 31.24% in 2022-2023 to 41.81% in 2021-2022, indicating a higher proportion of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds compared to the district and state. While Fairview Elementary School's performance is generally lower than nearby Franklin Elementary School and Watsessing Elementary School, it outperforms some other nearby schools, such as Belleville PS4 and Park Elementary School in the Newark Public School District.

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.
