Audubon Elementary School

Summary:

Audubon Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Merritt Island, Florida, serving grades PK-6 with a student population of around 450. The school is part of the Brevard County School District, which is ranked 17th out of 67 districts in Florida and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Audubon Elementary stands out for its diverse student population, with a higher percentage of White (63.56%) and Hispanic (13.78%) students compared to the surrounding schools, such as Emma Jewel Charter Academy and Endeavour Elementary School. Academically, the school consistently performs above the state and district averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics, with 63% of its 6th-grade students scoring proficient or better in both subjects, compared to the state averages of 47% and 54%, respectively. However, Audubon Elementary has experienced a higher chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 23.0% to 25.9% over the past few years, which is an area of concern that the school may need to address.

Another notable aspect of Audubon Elementary is its relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 49.89% to 57.78% over the past few years. This suggests a higher proportion of students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, which may be linked to the school's chronic absenteeism rate. While Audubon Elementary's academic performance is strong, its ranking has fluctuated over the years, and it would be valuable to investigate the factors contributing to these changes, as well as any potential achievement gaps or disparities among different racial/ethnic groups within the school.

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.
