Grove Park Elementary School

Summary:

Grove Park Elementary School is a public elementary school in West Palm Beach, Florida, serving 511 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Palm Beach School District, which is ranked 45 out of 67 districts in the state and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Grove Park Elementary stands out for several key factors. The school has a significantly higher percentage of African American (57.93%) and Hispanic (31.12%) students compared to nearby schools like Allamanda Elementary, Palm Beach Gardens Elementary, and Gardens School Of Technology Arts Inc, which tend to have more diverse student populations. Academically, Grove Park's proficiency rates in subjects like 5th-grade Science (15%) lag behind the district and state averages (51%). The school also faces challenges with high chronic absenteeism, rising from 17.2% in 2018-2019 to 29.4% currently, significantly higher than surrounding schools.

Despite the higher spending per student ($15,084) at Grove Park compared to other local schools, the academic and socioeconomic challenges persist. The school has an exceptionally high percentage of students (78.67%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage. Addressing these underlying issues, such as chronic absenteeism and supporting economically disadvantaged families, could be crucial for improving student outcomes at Grove Park Elementary. Collaborative efforts between the school, district, and local community will be important in driving positive change for this school.

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.
