Everglades Elementary

Summary:

Everglades Elementary is a public elementary school in West Palm Beach, Florida, serving 888 students in grades PK-5. This high-performing school consistently ranks among the top 20% of elementary schools in the state, with exceptional academic outcomes that outshine the district and state averages.

Everglades Elementary boasts impressive proficiency rates, with 76% of 5th-grade students proficient in English Language Arts, compared to 57% in the Palm Beach School District and 55% statewide. The school's 6th-grade students have achieved 100% proficiency in Math for the past two years, a remarkable feat. Additionally, Everglades Elementary maintains a diverse student population, with a racial makeup that reflects the broader community, which may contribute to its inclusive and welcoming environment.

While Everglades Elementary stands out as a high-performing school, some nearby schools, such as Renaissance Charter School at Cypress and Melaleuca Elementary, struggle with lower academic proficiency and higher chronic absenteeism rates. This disparity highlights the importance of access to quality education and the need to address educational inequities within the same school district. Everglades Elementary's success may be attributed, in part, to its higher spending per student, which could be a contributing factor to its strong academic performance and lower chronic absenteeism rates.

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.
