The high chronic absenteeism rates and low academic performance at Palm Springs Elementary suggest that the school and district should focus on addressing these issues through targeted interventions and resource allocation to improve the educational outcomes for the students.

Open Quote I went here during Bush jr's first year of Presidency. I know because one of my most vivid memories of my childhood was looking up in the sky and just seeing "BUSH" on the banner a plane was dragging behind, signifying his "winning" the election. Sadly, I can say that this was my fondest moment within those school boundaries. I'd gone to three different elementary schools and this was by far the most atrocious, pathetic, sad excuse for a school I have ever come to know in my life.

Some of my worst memories are here. This isn't just some kid with a grudge against the system. I'm 22 years old now and am now entering my Bachelor's program. I just happened to remember this place and scoured the internet to check it out and see how it's been doing and it doesn't look good. This place was awful. Back in those years, any reason to "celebrate" and not teach the students was welcomed with unnecessarily long, extended periods of time. I remember celebrating May Day and the games and shenanigans lasted more than a full week. I remember, any time we had a substitute teacher come in, the children would misbehave worse than I could imagine now. Kids would be jumping desks, screaming, throwing chairs and breaking things. Paper would fly and not a single thing would be taught that day. This was something normal for that school. The only time that a sub had a class of quiet children was the day the twin towers fell. I was in third grade and everyone was in shock. It's weird; you don't think third graders could really comprehend something like that, but we all took it in and it shook us to our core. But I'm getting off track.

Basically, this school was the worst thing to ever facilitate education. I recall partying for a week because our school, for the first time in years, or ever, had jumped from an F school to a D school. I shudder to think I spent 3 years at this place.

1/10 would not recommend. Close Quote

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.
