The school's per-student spending has increased from $13,495 in 2020-2021 to $14,711 in 2022-2023, which may have contributed to its strong academic performance, but the school faces a challenge with increasing chronic absenteeism, which has risen from 23.8% in 2022-2023 to 27.8% in 2021-2022.

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.

Open Quote Rush Henrietta doesn't pay attention to kids interests or talents - teachers don't care, & Superintendent is just sucking money out of thetas payers. Lies about what is going on there. Close Quote


by a parent
Friday, January 28, 2011

Open Quote The good staff members are excellent. Unfortunately, there are also teachers who have poor practices in terms of knowledge of appropriate behavior management/motivation strategies. Others seem unaware of how to provide engaging instruction for students from different backgrounds. More teacher training would help. As to the teacher's qualifications, because some aren't done with their master's degree yet or are new hires. Others are high quality, seasoned professionals.

Compared to other schools in the area, R-H seems to be right in the middle in overall school climate and safety. Close Quote

Open Quote Although the school has been slowly getting better, there is still a lot of work to be done. The facilities are aging and some of the staff members are still incompetent of giving a quality education. The school is busting at its seems, even with the whole 9th grade in another separate school down the road. There needs to be a second high school in Henrietta, because the school is too small for the number of students in the Rush-Henrietta Area. Close Quote

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.
