Honey Dew Elementary

Summary:

Honey Dew Elementary is a public elementary school in Renton, Washington, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade. With a diverse student population, the school has consistently struggled academically, ranking in the bottom quarter of Washington elementary schools in recent years.

Honey Dew's performance on state assessments is significantly below the Renton School District and Washington state averages across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, only 31.74% of Honey Dew students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 45.69% in the district and 52.86% statewide. The school's performance is particularly low for certain student subgroups, such as Hispanic, English Language Learner, and Special Education students.

Compared to nearby schools in the Renton School District, such as Sartori Elementary and Kennydale Elementary, Honey Dew's academic performance is significantly lower. The gap is even more pronounced when comparing Honey Dew to schools in the higher-performing Issaquah School District, such as Newcastle Elementary and Briarwood Elementary. These factors suggest that Honey Dew Elementary faces significant challenges in supporting student learning and achievement.

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.
