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 school received a new Principle for the 2016-2017 school year! Dr. Jacobson is a dedicated principle with a passion for teaching! She is can be seen in classrooms sharing her love of math with all her students. She's very involved in her school community and is always available to speak to parents! I my child has been at Willmore since Pre-K and I absolutely appreciate the small classroom sizes and that teachers are much more able to TEACH each child and cater to their individual needs. As head of PTA I am also proud to say we are constantly working to create a community between the school and parents. Vietnamese and Spanish liaisons are available on-site from 7:30am-10:30am every day for parents/families to come talk to someone at the school. I'm very happy with Willmore and am confident the school will improve its test scores in the near future. 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.
