Abraham Lincoln School #6

Summary:

Abraham Lincoln School #6 is an elementary school in Garfield, New Jersey, serving 352 students in grades PK-5 as part of the Garfield Public School District.

While Abraham Lincoln School #6 is part of the same district as higher-performing schools like Christopher Columbus School #8 and James Madison School #10, its academic performance and student outcomes are significantly lower. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student population (73.3%) and consistently ranks in the bottom 25% of New Jersey elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. Chronic absenteeism has also sharply increased, from 7.7% in 2016-2017 to 26.7% in 2021-2022, which is higher than nearby schools.

The high rates of free and reduced-price lunch recipients at Abraham Lincoln School #6 suggest that the school serves a predominantly low-income student population, which may contribute to the academic challenges faced by the school. These stark differences in performance and outcomes between Abraham Lincoln School #6 and the higher-performing nearby schools within the same district raise questions about equity and the distribution of resources and support within the Garfield Public School District. Targeted interventions and support, along with a focus on addressing the unique needs of the school's student population, could potentially lead to better outcomes for the students.

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.
