Hudson Elementary School

Summary:

Hudson Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades PK-3 in Union City, New Jersey, with a student population of 295. The school is part of the Union City School District, which has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Hudson Elementary School is part of the same district as nearby schools like Sara M. Gilmore Academy, its academic performance and other key metrics are generally lower. For example, only 46.9% of 3rd-grade students at Hudson Elementary were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 90.7% at Sara M. Gilmore. Hudson Elementary also has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate of 31.6%, much higher than the 10.8% to 31.6% range of nearby schools. Additionally, 76.61% of Hudson Elementary students receive free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a predominantly low-income population.

However, Hudson Elementary School's performance varies by student subgroup. While the school's overall ranking is lower, its Hispanic students and English Language Learner students rank in the top 20% and top 25%, respectively, of New Jersey elementary schools in their subgroups. This suggests that there may be opportunities for targeted interventions to support all students and improve the school's overall academic performance.

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.
