Southeast Elementary School has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (89.05%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 44.33% to 91.67% Hispanic students. The school's academic performance, as measured by the percentage of students proficient or better in New York State Assessments, is generally lower than the state and district averages, with proficiency rates around 35-45% in the 2022-2023 school year, while the state averages were around 45-54%. The school's performance on state assessments varies significantly across different student subgroups, with the school ranking higher for Hispanic students and English Language Learners compared to other subgroups. Additionally, Southeast Elementary School has a very high percentage of students (86.75% in 2022-2023) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Over the past few years, Southeast Elementary School's academic performance on state assessments has been declining, with proficiency rates dropping from around 50% in 2020-2021 to 35-45% in 2022-2023. While the school's performance is generally lower than the state and district averages, it is performing better than some of the nearby schools, such as Laurel Park Elementary and Oak Park Elementary, which have even lower proficiency rates. The high percentage of economically disadvantaged students and English Language Learners at Southeast Elementary School may be contributing factors to the school's lower academic performance, and targeted interventions and support programs may be necessary to address the specific needs of the students and improve overall academic 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.
