Space Coast Junior/Senior High School

Summary:

Space Coast Junior/Senior High School is a public high school located in Cocoa, Florida, serving grades 7-12 with a total enrollment of 1,534 students. 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.

One key differentiator for Space Coast Junior/Senior High School is its racial makeup, with a significantly higher percentage of white students (74.51%) compared to nearby schools like Rockledge Senior High School, which has a more diverse student population. Additionally, Space Coast has consistently maintained high four-year graduation rates, ranging from 84.0% to 92.2% over the past few years, outperforming some nearby schools. However, the school has experienced a gradual increase in chronic absenteeism, from 12.6% in 2019-2020 to 19.7% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the rates of some top-performing nearby schools.

While Space Coast Junior/Senior High School's test scores are generally above the state and district averages, they are not as high as some of the top-performing nearby schools, such as Edgewood Junior/Senior High School. Additionally, Space Coast serves a more economically diverse student population, with a relatively high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (48.76%), compared to schools like Edgewood (16.19%) and Merritt Island High School (34.93%). This suggests that Space Coast could potentially learn from the practices and strategies employed by these high-performing schools to address areas for improvement, such as reducing chronic absenteeism and improving test scores.

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.
