Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School

Summary:

Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School is a public elementary school in West Palm Beach, Florida, serving 432 students in grades PK-5 and part of the Palm Beach School District.

Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary has a more racially diverse student population compared to many nearby schools, with a student body that is 35.88% White, 28.47% African American, 26.16% Hispanic, and 3.94% Asian. However, the school faces challenges, including a significantly higher chronic absenteeism rate ranging from 39.4% to 24.8% in recent years. Academically, the school generally performs below district and state averages in English Language Arts and Mathematics, though its 5th-grade Math proficiency rate of 66% in 2022-2023 was higher than the district and state. The school also serves a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students, with 56.02% to 70.38% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch in recent years.

Despite these challenges, Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary has a relatively high per-student spending, ranging from $18,077 to $25,176 in recent years, which is higher than many nearby schools like Lighthouse Elementary School, Lake Park Elementary School, and Grove Park Elementary School. Addressing the school's areas of concern, such as chronic absenteeism, while building on its strengths, such as its diverse student population and higher 5th-grade Math proficiency, could be a focus for the school and district to improve educational outcomes for its students.

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.
