Deane-Porter Elementary School

Summary:

Deane-Porter Elementary School is a highly-ranked public elementary school in Rumson, New Jersey, serving 384 students in grades PK-3. The school consistently performs among the top elementary schools in the state, with over 80% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and Mathematics.

Deane-Porter Elementary School stands out for its exceptional academic performance, with students significantly outperforming state averages on standardized tests. The school has a very low student-teacher ratio, providing students with high levels of individual attention and support. However, the school's student population is overwhelmingly white (over 93%) and comes from relatively affluent families, with less than 1% of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. This lack of diversity and socioeconomic homogeneity raises questions about equity and access to high-quality education in the region.

When compared to nearby schools, Deane-Porter Elementary School's performance is exceptional. For example, Point Road School in Little Silver and Monmouth Beach Elementary School, both highly ranked, have similar student demographics and academic outcomes. In contrast, schools in the LONG BRANCH PUBLIC SCHOOL District, such as Lenna W. Conrow Elementary School and Joseph M. Ferraina Early Childhood Learning Center, have much lower academic performance and higher rates of poverty among their student populations.

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.
