Summary:

Claremont Avenue Elementary School is a public elementary school serving grades K-5 in Colonia, New Jersey, with 319 students from diverse backgrounds. This high-performing school consistently outshines the Woodbridge Township School District and the state of New Jersey in academic achievement, ranking in the top 30% of elementary schools statewide.

Claremont Avenue Elementary School's standout performance is evident across key metrics. In the 2022-2023 school year, 64.9% of 3rd graders, 59% of 4th graders, and 72.5% of 5th graders were proficient or better in English Language Arts, significantly outpacing the district's scores.

The school's diverse student population, with a significant representation of Asian (27.27%) and Hispanic (19.12%) students, is another notable feature that sets it apart from some nearby schools, such as Oak Tree Road Elementary School, which has an 88.47% Asian student population.

Claremont Avenue Elementary School's strong academic performance extends to specific student subgroups as well, with the school ranking in the top 25% of New Jersey elementary schools for female students and Hispanic students. Additionally, the school's relatively low percentage of students from low socioeconomic backgrounds (26.02% receive free or reduced-price lunch) suggests that it may have access to more resources and support for its students, contributing to its impressive academic outcomes despite spending less per student than some nearby schools, such as Lynn Crest Elementary School and Robert Mascenik Elementary 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.
