The Greene School

Summary:

The Greene School is a public charter high school serving grades 9-12 in West Greenwich, Rhode Island, with a student population of 199. While the school has a more diverse student body compared to nearby high schools, it faces challenges in academic performance, with lower standardized test scores than higher-performing schools in the region.

The Greene School's student population is more racially diverse than the surrounding area, with 56.78% White, 10.55% African American, 29.65% Hispanic, and 2.01% two or more races. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, lags behind nearby high-performing schools like North Kingstown Senior High, Chariho High School, and East Greenwich High. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, only 44% of The Greene School's students were proficient or better in SAT/English Language Arts, compared to 78.6% at North Kingstown Senior High and 80.6% at East Greenwich High.

The Greene School's performance also varies significantly across different student subgroups, with the school ranking 42 out of 53 Rhode Island high schools for Hispanic students and 24 out of 43 for White students in the 2022-2023 school year. Additionally, the school's performance for students with special needs and those from low socioeconomic backgrounds is particularly concerning, ranking 29 out of 29 Rhode Island high schools for special education students and 38 out of 54 for low socioeconomic status students in the 2021-2022 school year. These challenges suggest that The Greene School may need to implement targeted interventions to address the academic achievement gaps within its diverse student population.

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.
