Hyer Elementary

Summary:

Hyer Elementary is a public elementary school in Dallas, Texas, serving 486 students in grades PK-4 and part of the highly-ranked Highland Park Independent School District (HPISD). This exceptional school consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Texas, with a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger and exceptional academic performance that sets it apart from many of its peers.

Hyer Elementary's academic excellence is evident in its consistently high rankings, with a statewide ranking between 9 and 98 out of over 4,500 schools in the past 10 years. The school's students outperform their peers in the HPISD and the state of Texas on STAAR tests, with 86% of 3rd-grade students and 89% of 4th-grade students proficient or better in STAAR Reading, compared to 50% and 47% statewide, respectively. Hyer also excels in the performance of specific student subgroups, ranking among the top 5% of Texas elementary schools for Special Education students and the top 10% for Asian and White students.

While Hyer Elementary's academic excellence is undeniable, the school's demographic makeup is notably homogeneous, with a significantly higher percentage of White students (84.98%) compared to the surrounding schools and the state average. Additionally, the school has an extremely low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, raising questions about the accessibility and inclusiveness of the school for students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. Interestingly, some schools outside the HPISD, such as George B. Dealey Montessori Academy, also demonstrate strong academic performance, suggesting that factors beyond just the district may contribute to a school's success.

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.
