Academically, Miller (Isaac) Elementary's test scores are generally lower than the district and state averages across subjects and grade levels, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts/Literacy ranging from 14.66% (3rd grade) to 34.23% (5th grade), compared to the district's 18.77% to 28.06% and the state's 42.96% to 46.66%.

The school also faces significant socioeconomic challenges, with 89.51% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch in 2022-2023, which is significantly higher than the 57.78% to 93.03% range of surrounding schools. Additionally, Miller (Isaac) Elementary has a relatively high student-teacher ratio of 24.2, compared to the 19.5 to 24.1 range of nearby schools. These factors, combined with the school's consistent low performance and 1-star rating from SchoolDigger, suggest that Miller (Isaac) Elementary faces significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to its students.

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.
