Mandarin High School

Summary:

Mandarin High School is a public high school in Jacksonville, Florida, serving 2,405 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Duval District, which is ranked 52 out of 67 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Mandarin High School stands out for its consistently high graduation rates, ranging from 94.5% to 97.6% over the past five years, significantly outperforming the district and state averages. The school's students also excel on standardized tests, with higher proficiency rates than the Duval District and Florida state averages in subjects like Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology 1, and US History. However, the school has experienced a concerning increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 13.3% in 2019-2020 to 31.6% in 2022-2023.

When compared to nearby schools, Mandarin High School's performance is mixed. While it outperforms some schools in the Duval District, such as River City Science Academy, it lags behind high-performing schools in the neighboring St. Johns District, like Bartram Trail High School and Creekside High School, in terms of test scores and graduation rates. Addressing the chronic absenteeism issue and learning from the successful practices of these neighboring schools could help Mandarin High School further improve its educational 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.
