James F. Murray School

Summary:

James F. Murray School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-8 in the diverse community of Jersey City, New Jersey. With a student population of around 800, the school has faced academic challenges, ranking in the bottom third of New Jersey elementary schools for the past several years.

One of the key issues at James F. Murray School is its high chronic absenteeism rate, which has risen from 8.3% in 2017-2018 to 32.5% in 2021-2022, significantly higher than the state average. The school's performance on state assessments is also below state and Jersey City Public Schools district averages across grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 38.4% of 3rd graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 42% statewide and 40.3% in the district. Math proficiency rates were even lower, with only 34.8% of 3rd graders and 2% of 8th graders meeting or exceeding standards.

While James F. Murray School outperforms some of its immediate neighbors, such as Ollie Culbreth Junior School and Whitney M. Young Junior School, which have even lower test scores and higher chronic absenteeism rates, the school still lags behind higher-performing schools in the Jersey City Public Schools district, such as Dr. Paul Rafalides School and Dr. Maya Angelou Elementary School. The school's high percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, combined with its low academic performance, suggests that socioeconomic factors may play a significant role in shaping the educational outcomes at James F. Murray School.

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.
