Pine Jog Elementary School

Summary:

Pine Jog Elementary School is a public elementary school in West Palm Beach, Florida, serving 845 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.

Pine Jog has a more diverse student population compared to nearby schools, with a higher percentage of African American (34.44%) and Hispanic (42.72%) students. However, the school faces significant challenges, including a sharp increase in chronic absenteeism, from 11.6% in 2018-2019 to 26.4% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the 19.2% to 43.8% range of nearby schools. Additionally, 66.04% of Pine Jog students receive free or reduced-price lunch, higher than the 33.67% to 80.42% range of nearby schools. While the school's test scores have improved in some areas, they generally lag behind the Palm Beach district and state averages.

Pine Jog's statewide ranking has steadily declined, from 665 out of 2,087 Florida elementary schools in 2015-2016 to 1,270 out of 2,256 in 2023-2024, suggesting the school is struggling to keep pace with others in the state. Despite increased spending per student, from $9,158 in 2019-2020 to $12,274 in 2022-2023, the school's academic outcomes have not yet improved. Addressing the underlying issues of chronic absenteeism and socioeconomic challenges through targeted interventions and community collaboration could be crucial for improving student performance at Pine Jog Elementary 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.
