R. C. Bannerman Learning Center

Summary:

R. C. Bannerman Learning Center is a public high school serving grades 6-12 in Green Cove Springs, Florida, with a total enrollment of 256 students. The school is part of the Clay District, which is ranked 10th out of 67 districts in Florida and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Despite being part of a high-performing district, R. C. Bannerman Learning Center consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of Florida high schools, with a statewide ranking between 542 and 749 out of 792 schools over the past decade. The school has received a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years, indicating very low academic performance. Its proficiency rates on state assessments are alarmingly low, with only 5-15% of students proficient in EOC exams, compared to 49-79% for the Clay District and 49-66% for the state of Florida. Additionally, R. C. Bannerman Learning Center has experienced extremely high chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 61.6% to 81.1% over the past five years, and its four-year graduation rate has fluctuated between 42.5% and 67.5%, well below the district and state averages.

When compared to nearby schools, the differences in academic performance and student outcomes are stark. For example, Fleming Island High School, which is only 6.34 miles away, ranks 67th out of 792 Florida high schools and has significantly higher proficiency rates, graduation rates, and lower chronic absenteeism. Despite the increased spending per student at R. C. Bannerman Learning Center, from $13,342 in 2020-2021 to $19,931 in 2022-2023, these investments have not translated into improved academic outcomes for the school's students, who all come from low-income households.

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.
