Fairglen Elementary School

Summary:

Fairglen Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Cocoa, Florida, serving grades PK-6 with a student population of 617. While the school is part of the Brevard District, which is ranked 17th out of 67 districts in Florida and has a 4-star rating, Fairglen itself is facing significant challenges, with consistently lower academic performance compared to nearby schools and the state average.

Fairglen has a significantly higher percentage of white students (70.34%) compared to the nearby schools, which have more diverse student populations. However, the school also has a very high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 32.6% to 38.9% over the past few years, much higher than the nearby schools. Fairglen's test scores are consistently lower than the Brevard and Florida state averages across all grade levels and subjects, with only 19% of 5th graders proficient in science, compared to 57% in Brevard and 51% statewide. Additionally, Fairglen has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 65.34% to 70.83% over the past few years, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population.

Despite the higher spending per student at Fairglen compared to the nearby schools, such as Robert L. Stevenson Elementary and Lewis Carroll Elementary, the school's performance has steadily declined, with its statewide ranking dropping from 627th out of 1,984 Florida elementary schools in 2011-2012 to 2,020th out of 2,240 in 2022-2023, and its star rating dropping from 3 to 0 over the same period. These disparities suggest that Fairglen is underperforming compared to its peers and that targeted interventions and support may be needed to address the specific challenges facing the school and its student population.

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.
