Elementary Schools in John Day School District 3


The John Day School District 3 in Oregon is home to two elementary schools: Humbolt Elementary School and Seneca Elementary School. While both serve elementary grades, they exhibit some notable differences in their student populations, academic performance, and resource allocation.

Humbolt Elementary School is the larger of the two, with 242 students, compared to Seneca Elementary's mere 12 students. This size difference is reflected in their student-teacher ratios, with Seneca boasting an impressive 6:1 ratio, while Humbolt has a more typical 12.2:1 ratio. Humbolt also outperforms the district and state in 3rd and 4th grade English Language Arts and Math proficiency, though its 5th and 6th grade scores lag behind. In contrast, Seneca's test score data is not available for comparison.

Financially, Seneca Elementary spends significantly more per student, at $32,059, compared to Humbolt's $19,696 per student. This higher spending may contribute to Seneca's smaller class sizes and more individualized attention. However, Humbolt has a higher percentage of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, at 48.76%, compared to Seneca's 33.33%. The racial and ethnic composition of the two schools also differs, with Humbolt having a higher percentage of white students and Seneca having more Hispanic and Native American students.
