Ps 130 Abram Stevens Hewitt

Summary:

PS 130 Abram Stevens Hewitt is an elementary school located in the Bronx, New York, serving 278 students from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade. The school serves a predominantly Hispanic student population in a high-poverty community, with 92% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

Despite the school's higher-than-average spending per student, PS 130 Abram Stevens Hewitt has consistently ranked in the bottom quartile of New York elementary schools, with proficiency rates on state assessments in English Language Arts and Math significantly below the state and district averages. The school's performance varies across different student subgroups, with English Language Learners and students with disabilities performing particularly poorly. When compared to nearby schools, such as Longwood Academy Of Discovery and PS 62 Inocensio Casanova, as well as local charter schools like Storefront Academy Charter School and South Bronx Classical Charter School, PS 130 Abram Stevens Hewitt's academic performance is significantly lower.

The data analysis suggests that PS 130 Abram Stevens Hewitt faces significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to its students, and that targeted interventions and support may be necessary to address the unique needs of the school's diverse student population. The school's consistently low academic performance, particularly in comparison to nearby schools and charter schools serving similar student populations, indicates a need for substantial improvement in instructional practices, curriculum, and support services. Additionally, the higher-than-average spending per student at the school raises questions about the effective allocation of resources and the need for a more strategic approach to improving student outcomes.

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.
