Jericho Elementary School is a public elementary school in Centereach, New York, serving 413 students in grades 1-7 as part of the Middle Country Central School District. With a diverse student population and strong academic performance, Jericho stands out among its peers in the region.

Jericho Elementary School has a more diverse student body compared to nearby schools, with higher percentages of Hispanic (33.17%) and Asian (8.47%) students. Academically, the school consistently outperforms the district and state in English Language Arts and Math proficiency rates for grades 3-5. For example, in 2022-2023, Jericho's 3rd-grade ELA proficiency rate was 47.5%, compared to the district's 39.47% and the state's 44.89%.

While Jericho's overall performance is strong, the school's performance for certain student subgroups, such as males, special education, and low socioeconomic status, is relatively weaker, ranking in the bottom 50% of New York elementary schools. Additionally, some nearby schools, such as North Coleman Road School and Stagecoach School, have higher test scores and statewide rankings, despite being in the same district. This suggests that factors beyond just district-level resources and policies may be influencing school performance.

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.
