Golfview Elementary Magnet School

Summary:

Golfview Elementary Magnet School is a public elementary school in Rockledge, Florida, serving 441 students in grades PK-6. The school is part of the Brevard District, which is ranked 17th out of 67 districts in Florida and has a 4-star rating.

Golfview Elementary faces significant challenges, with a student population that is significantly more diverse than nearby schools like Ralph M Williams Junior Elementary, Tropical Elementary, and Saturn Elementary. Golfview has consistently high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 25% to 30.8%, and its test scores are significantly lower than the Brevard and Florida state averages across all grade levels and subjects. Additionally, Golfview has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 69.02% to 74.15%, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Despite being a magnet school and receiving higher per-student funding than nearby schools, Golfview does not appear to be performing at a higher level. The school has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Florida elementary schools, with a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger. While Golfview has a relatively low student-teacher ratio, this factor does not seem to be translating into improved student outcomes. Further investigation may be needed to understand the root causes of the school's struggles and identify effective strategies to support its students.

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.
