Limestone Creek Elementary School

Summary:

Limestone Creek Elementary School is a public elementary school in Jupiter, Florida, serving 946 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.

Limestone Creek Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Florida, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts, Math, and Science that significantly exceed the district and state averages. For example, in 2022-2023, 75% of 3rd graders were proficient in ELA, compared to 48% in the district and 50% statewide. The school also has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 16.9 and spends significantly more per student ($12,189) than the district and state averages. However, Limestone Creek has a more homogeneous student population, with a majority (71.78%) of White students, compared to nearby schools like Timber Trace Elementary School and Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School.

The consistent academic excellence and resource allocation at Limestone Creek Elementary suggest that the school is effectively serving its student population. However, the demographic differences between Limestone Creek and the surrounding schools raise questions about equity and access to high-quality education for all students in the Palm Beach School District. Further investigation is needed to understand the factors contributing to these disparities and ensure that all students have the resources and support they need to succeed.

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.
