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 Teachers need training. Some still have pets and award only those they prefer. Principal and Assistant Principal have kids there, and many Teachers who add to overcrowding, and they win awards, take all the daycare spots and don't live in the community. Gate is anyone who studied for the test or your mom is a Gate teacher. Some teachers are really nice, but others think they know everything and they're not trained well. Bad attitude. Many in the community want to and cant wait to send their kids to private school as no kids really live in the community that go there. Lots of Asians and Hispanics that don't live in community, spoiled majority kids with parents who race past the crossing guard and speed in the parking lot. Fake attitudes around. School just gives homework for the heck of it and extra work at home for no real reason. Needs a shift in teachers, move them to other schools and move out non residents. 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.
