East Street School

Summary:

East Street School is an elementary school in Hicksville, New York, serving 398 students in grades K-5. It is part of the Hicksville Union Free School District, which is ranked 386 out of 866 school districts in New York and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

East Street School stands out for its diverse student population, with a high percentage of Asian (39.45%) and Hispanic (43.22%) students, and its consistently strong academic performance. The school outperforms the district and state averages in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math proficiency, with 83.33% of 3rd-grade students proficient or better in Math, compared to 61.62% in the district and 53.68% statewide. East Street School's performance is particularly strong for Asian students, ranking 406 out of 605 New York elementary schools in ELA and 224 out of 430 in Math for this subgroup. However, the school's performance varies across different student subgroups, suggesting potential achievement gaps that may need to be addressed.

While East Street School is a high-performing school, it is not the top-performing school in the area. Nearby schools like Lee Avenue School, Kramer Lane Elementary School, and Jeffrey Ratner-Robert Seaman Elementary School have higher statewide rankings and better test scores, particularly in Math. Additionally, East Street School's statewide ranking has declined over the years, from 382 out of 2,345 New York elementary schools in 2013-2014 to 893 out of 2,439 in 2022-2023, despite its strong academic performance. This may be due to the improving performance of other schools in the state. Another interesting finding is the significant increase in the percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at East Street School, from 33.51% in 2020-2021 to 53.27% in 2022-2023, suggesting a growing population of economically disadvantaged students.

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.
