Jefferson Elementary School

Summary:

Jefferson Elementary School is a public elementary school located in New Rochelle, New York, serving 478 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the New Rochelle City School District, which is ranked 442 out of 866 districts in New York and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Jefferson Elementary School has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (75.94%) compared to nearby schools, it has lower proficiency rates in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math compared to the district and the state of New York. For example, the 3rd-grade ELA proficiency rate at Jefferson Elementary was 44.12%, compared to 42.6% for the district and 44.89% for the state. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom half of New York elementary schools, with a ranking of 1180 out of 2439 schools in the 2022-2023 school year, and has received a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger. Additionally, the school's performance varies significantly across different student subgroups, with White students and African American students outperforming Hispanic students and English Language Learners.

When compared to nearby schools, such as Daniel Webster Elementary School, which is also in the New Rochelle City School District, Jefferson Elementary School generally underperforms, with significantly higher proficiency rates in both ELA and Math across all grade levels. Despite the school's relatively low academic performance, Jefferson Elementary School has a high per-student spending of $27,129 in the 2022-2023 school year, which is significantly higher than the state average. This raises questions about the efficient allocation of resources and the need to ensure that funding is being used effectively to support student learning.

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.
