Pinehurst Elementary School

Summary:

Pinehurst Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Lake View, NY, serving grades PK-5 with a total enrollment of 583 students. The school is part of the Frontier Central School District, which is ranked 301 out of 866 school districts in New York and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Pinehurst Elementary School consistently outperforms the Frontier Central School District and the state of New York in standardized test scores for English Language Arts and Math. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, Pinehurst had 56.72% of 4th graders proficient or better in ELA compared to 51.56% for the district and 48.79% for the state. In Math, Pinehurst had 87.69% of 4th graders proficient or better compared to 75.19% for the district and 53.85% for the state. However, the school has a significantly higher percentage of white students (95.37%) compared to the surrounding schools like John T Waugh Elementary (54.31% white) and Highland Elementary (81.46% white). Additionally, Pinehurst has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (14.24% in 2022-2023), which is significantly lower than the nearby schools.

While Pinehurst Elementary School has maintained a strong academic performance, its statewide ranking has declined from a high of 145 out of 2,352 schools in 2014-2015 to 700 out of 2,439 schools in 2022-2023. This suggests that the school may be facing increasing competition or challenges in maintaining its top-tier status. When compared to other elementary schools in the Frontier Central School District and the neighboring Evans-Brant Central School District (Lake Shore), Pinehurst Elementary School stands out as a high-performing school with a more homogeneous student population and lower rates of free/reduced-price lunch recipients, raising questions about equity and access to quality education in the broader region.

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.
