East End School

Summary:

East End School is an elementary school in North Plainfield, New Jersey, serving students from pre-kindergarten to 4th grade as part of the North Plainfield School District. The school faces significant challenges, with a student population that is predominantly Hispanic, low academic performance, high rates of chronic absenteeism, and a large percentage of economically disadvantaged students.

Compared to nearby schools like Bayberry School and School One Elementary, East End School consistently ranks in the bottom 15-20% of New Jersey elementary schools, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics that are significantly lower than the state and district averages. The school's chronic absenteeism rate has also been steadily increasing, reaching 15.2% in the 2021-2022 school year, which is higher than the surrounding schools.

Despite the school's low performance, East End School has a relatively high per-student spending of $10,925, which is higher than the surrounding schools. This suggests that the issue may not be solely a lack of funding, but rather the effective allocation and utilization of resources. Additionally, the school has seen a demographic shift, with a decrease in the percentage of White and Asian students and an increase in the percentage of Hispanic students, which may be contributing to the academic challenges and the need for targeted interventions and support.

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.
