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 BEWARE!!!!I have three kids in middle school one in 8th grade and two in 7th grade. One child is my cousin whom my husband and I have sole custody. This school year has been a nightmare...when we first got temporary custody of my 12 year old cousin she had a caseworker due to her being removed from the home she was living in and she was placed with us. She started going to school with our children, shortly after being placed with us I had a not so pleasant conversation with her caseworker about how unprofessional she was. Shortly after that she showed up at the children school had a conversation with the school counselor and CPS was called on our family, the reason " the children were not being fed enough...not that were not being fed according to the school not being fed ENOUGH! The CPS person and police officer that came to our home shook their heads and both said, they were not going to file a report and that this was ridicules. Well, this last Friday we get a phone call from a CPS person saying that they are at the school again...the concern the kids are not being fed enough ??? The CPS person spoke to our children and said they wasn't that much of a concern so she would not come out to speak with us on Friday she would come out on Monday( today). I am so upset with the school, my kids said, they feel like they are being singled out..always being asked how is everything going at home? are you alright? are you hungry? of course ALL kids are always hungry! So upset! NOT ONCE DID ANYONE CALL OUR HOME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS PRIOR TO CALLING CPS... TWICE!!!! I'm going to file some sort of a complaint with the school and or the school board...I am also looking into getting a lawyer to see what our rights are and what they recommend us doing.

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.
