Summary:

Meadow Park Elementary School is a public elementary school in West Palm Beach, Florida, serving 809 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Palm Beach School District, which is ranked 41 out of 68 districts in the state.

Meadow Park Elementary consistently outperforms the Palm Beach district and the state of Florida in academic proficiency, with 72% of 5th-grade students proficient or better in FAST/English Language Arts, compared to 57% for the district and 55% for the state. The school also has a more diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Hispanic students (69.72%) and a lower percentage of White students (21.01%) compared to nearby schools like Palm Springs Elementary School and Berkshire Elementary School. However, Meadow Park has experienced a steady increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 19.2% in 2018-2019 to 30.6% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the state and district averages.

Despite the school's high percentage of economically disadvantaged students, with 64.65% to 77.06% receiving free or reduced-price lunch, Meadow Park Elementary has maintained a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger for the past several years, indicating consistent academic performance that is above the state and district averages. This suggests that the school is effectively serving its diverse student population and may have effective teaching practices, curriculum, or support systems in place that could be worth exploring and potentially replicating at other schools in the Palm Beach School District.

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.
