Martin Luther King Junior School

Summary:

Martin Luther King Junior School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-8 in Jersey City, New Jersey, with a student population of 776. This school stands out for its unique racial makeup, strong academic performance, and lower chronic absenteeism rates compared to the surrounding district.

One of the key differentiators of Martin Luther King Junior School is its racial composition, with a higher percentage of White (52.19%) and Asian (17.4%) students than the Jersey City Public Schools district and other nearby schools. Academically, the school generally outperforms the district and state in English Language Arts and Mathematics proficiency across most grade levels. For example, in 3rd grade ELA, the school scored 52.2% proficient or better, compared to the district's 40.3% and the state's 42%. Additionally, the school has a lower chronic absenteeism rate of 10.6%, compared to the district's 16.7% and nearby schools like Joseph H. Brensinger School (28.1%) and Mahatma K. Gandhi School (36.3%).

While Martin Luther King Junior School demonstrates strengths, it also faces challenges. The school's performance varies across different student subgroups, with White and Asian students performing relatively well, but African American and Hispanic students lagging behind their peers in both ELA and Mathematics proficiency. This highlights the need for targeted interventions and support for these underperforming subgroups. Additionally, when compared to higher-performing charter schools like Jersey City Golden Door Charter School and Learning Community Charter School, Martin Luther King Junior School generally underperforms in both academic achievement and school rankings. Continued focus on addressing these challenges could help the school further improve its educational 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.

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.
