Mila Elementary School

Summary:

Mila Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Merritt Island, Florida, serving grades PK-6 with a student population of 433. The school is part of the Brevard District, which is ranked 17th out of 67 districts in Florida and is rated 4 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Mila Elementary School faces several challenges compared to nearby schools like Tropical Elementary and Robert L. Stevenson Elementary. The school has a more diverse student population, with a higher percentage of African American (19.17%) and Hispanic (15.94%) students. Additionally, Mila Elementary has a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 29.0% to 31.8% in recent years, and consistently underperforms the Brevard and Florida state averages in proficiency rates across various subjects and grade levels.

Despite having a higher per-student spending compared to the nearby schools, ranging from $12,840 to $13,510 in recent years, Mila Elementary School's statewide ranking has steadily declined over the years, from a high of 964 out of 2,064 Florida elementary schools in 2013-2014 to a low of 1,691 out of 2,240 in 2022-2023, with a consistent 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. These challenges, coupled with the high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, suggest that socioeconomic factors may play a significant role in the school's academic performance, and targeted interventions and resource allocation may be necessary to improve the school's outcomes.

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.
