Aloha. Larry here with Ola Properties, back with another segment of our top-rated schools on Oahu. Today we're going to talk about Admiral Chester W Nimitz Elementary School. So let's just jump right into the presentation here.

So as I say, it's the Admiral Chester W Nimitz Elementary School, more commonly known simply as Nimitz Elementary. And as you'll see from our list here, it is rated one of the top five public elementary schools on Oahu. And let's see, here's the school address at 520 Main Street in Honolulu. You can see the contact information for Ms. Marcy Kagami, the principal, as well as a link to their Facebook page. I believe this is the second school we've looked at that has a Facebook page, so you might want to check that out. The school serves grades PK through six and as of the writing of this, they had 706 students.

Looking at their academics, they have a student progress rating of 10 out of 10, and this rating measures how much students at the school have improved from one year to the next as compared to students with similar proficiency levels at other schools in the state. The students at this school are making far more academic progress, given where they were last year as compared to similar students.

Looking at test scores ratings, the overall test scores rating is eight out of 10. And these test scores show that the school is far above the state average. In English the proficiency is 73%, which does seem quite high, which is good, of course, state average being 47%. In math the proficiency is 66% where the state average is 54. So again, that's a good bit higher.

Moving on to the equity part of the ratings, we see the equity overview rating is at nine out of 10, which shows that disadvantaged students are performing better than other students in the state, though this school may still have achievement gaps.

Looking at race ethnicity, all students are 10 out of 10. White students, which are 49% of the students, are 10 out of 10 also. Black students, which are only 13%, are rated at seven out of 10. In regards to low-income students, excuse me, all students again are 10 out of 10. And the low income students, which are 29% of the students, are also 10 out of 10. Some interesting statistics.

Then we'll look at the environment of the school. Here are the student demographics. The school is 49% white with 20% being Hispanic and 13% being black. Evenly matched as far as gender goes with male and female both at 50%.

Looking at the teachers and staff, number of students per teacher is 16 to one. State average is 15 to one. Students per counselor is one student for three hundred and, one counselor per 363 students, excuse me, whereas the state average is 290 to one. And then the percentage of teachers with three or four more years' experience is at 89%, where the state average is 87%.

And here you'll see the area served by Moanalua, or by Nimitz Elementary, made a mistake on that, obviously. It's around the airport area and over around some of the golf courses and military bases.

So that's our presentation. Now here's the disclaimer. Ola Properties and the author of presentation, Larry Oldfield, we are both real estate brokers.
