Rafael Cordero y Molina

Summary:

Rafael Cordero y Molina is an elementary school located in Jersey City, New Jersey, serving grades PK-8 with a total enrollment of 735 students. The school is part of the Jersey City Public Schools district, which is ranked 459 out of 615 districts in New Jersey and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Rafael Cordero y Molina has a diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Asian (20.82%) and Hispanic (31.29%) students compared to the surrounding schools, such as Frank R Conwell School and Jotham W. Wakeman School. The school consistently outperforms the Jersey City Public Schools district and the state of New Jersey in English Language Arts (ELA) proficiency across all grade levels, but its mathematics performance is more mixed, with some grade levels performing above and others below the district and state averages. This discrepancy between ELA and mathematics performance may warrant further investigation and targeted interventions to improve mathematics outcomes.

While Rafael Cordero y Molina's performance is generally strong compared to other schools in the Jersey City Public Schools district, the school has experienced a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 13.1% in 2020-2021 to 31.7% in 2021-2022, which is higher than the surrounding schools. Addressing the root causes of chronic absenteeism, such as socioeconomic factors or school climate, could be an important area of focus for the school and district to ensure continued academic success for all 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.

Open Quote Our child is in Kindergarten at Cordero and attended Pre-K there. The teachers and staff are great and really seem to care about the children. Diverse student body with a strong PTA and high community involvement dedicated to continuing to improve and enhance the school and the student experience in general. The school seems to improve year over year. Highly recommend Cordero PS 37! Close Quote

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.
