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 This school is amazing not only are my children reading two levels ahead but the teachers are so professional. My experience here has been wonderful . I love the fact the grade teachers work together to plan and use same exact lessons for the students. Let's just say its starts from the top because they have an awesome principal. Close Quote

Open Quote Allows staff to bully students. I reported a staff member for striking a child not my own and they claimed she is just strict. BS she is an abuser who is still there abusing kids. They do not care for the welfare of your child here! I will involve the police next time i see this Close Quote

Open Quote My children have attended Glacier Peak for 4 years now, and we are so lucky to be able to send them to this fabulous school. The principal is amazing and always willing to meet with parents and students. They have wonderful teachers who have helped my son so much this year. The music, art and PE teachers are great too!

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.
