Field Street School

Summary:

Field Street School is an elementary school located in Carneys Point, New Jersey, serving grades 1-3 with a total enrollment of 501 students. The school is part of the Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District, which is ranked 578 out of 615 districts in New Jersey and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Field Street School has consistently struggled with low academic performance, with proficiency rates in 3rd grade English Language Arts and Mathematics lagging behind the state average. In 2022-2023, only 32.2% of students were proficient or better in ELA, and 30.2% in Math, compared to the state averages of 42% and 45.9%, respectively. The school's performance on the Start Strong assessments for 4th grade in 2020-2021 was also significantly lower than the state. Additionally, Field Street School has experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 13.6% in 2018-2019 to 25.3% in 2021-2022, which is much higher than the state average.

In contrast, schools in neighboring districts, such as Governor Charles C. Stratton in Woolwich Township and Logan Township Elementary School, have significantly higher academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates. This suggests that the challenges faced by Field Street School and the Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District may be unique to the local area. To address these issues, the school and district should consider implementing evidence-based strategies to improve academic achievement, address chronic absenteeism, and provide additional support for students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds.

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.
