Summary:

Clifford O Taylor/Kirklane Elementary is a public elementary school in Palm Springs, Florida, serving 1,230 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 and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Clifford O Taylor/Kirklane Elementary faces significant academic challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom 10% of Florida elementary schools over the past decade. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Math, and Science are significantly lower than the state and district averages, ranging from 30% to 42% compared to the state averages of 53% to 60%. The school also has a high chronic absenteeism rate, ranging from 18.5% to 34.1%, which is much higher than the state and district averages. Despite the school's relatively high per-student spending and favorable student-teacher ratio, these factors have not translated into improved academic outcomes.

Nearby schools, such as Heritage Elementary, Pine Jog Elementary, and Montessori Academy of Early Enrichment, generally perform better academically than Clifford O Taylor/Kirklane Elementary, with higher proficiency rates and lower chronic absenteeism. However, these nearby schools also serve a similar demographic of students, with high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. The challenges faced by the student population, such as access to resources and support, may be contributing factors to the school's lower academic performance.

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.
