Kenneth L Rutherford School

Summary:

Kenneth L Rutherford School is an elementary school located in Monticello, New York, serving grades 3-5 with a student population of 492. The school is part of the Monticello Central School District, which is ranked 786 out of 866 districts in New York and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Despite its diverse student population, with a majority of Hispanic (around 40%) and White (around 32%) students, Kenneth L Rutherford School consistently ranks among the lowest-performing elementary schools in New York, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math significantly below the state averages. This is likely exacerbated by the high percentage (around 80%) of students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population. The school's relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 9.7 to 11.4 students per teacher, suggests that class size may not be the primary factor contributing to the school's academic struggles.

The proximity of Ellenville Elementary School, Sullivan West Elementary School, Tri-Valley Elementary School, and other nearby schools in the Ellenville Central School District, Sullivan West Central School District, and Tri-Valley Central School District may present opportunities for collaboration, resource sharing, and the implementation of best practices to improve educational outcomes for all students in the 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.
