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.

Open Quote The teachers seem friendly. Great positive attitudes, but the drop off locations are bad. Streets are narrow nowhere really safe to drop off your student. They have school safety which just tells you to drop your kid off in a red zone. If it's a drop off only then it should not be a red zone. Red meaning do parking what so ever. I guess they feel like they can change the rules to fit their needs. If the school safety was really concerned about Jay walking. Sorry for the spelling. Then why does the city nor the school have a crosswalk near these entrances. Especially since parking is bad on tge Street. Also street sweep comes by before school starts. Their is no need for any of this. I understand due to covid-19 but you can't even walk your kid to the line on the 1st day of school. Close Quote

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.
