Lyman High School stands out for its diverse student population, with a racial makeup of 41.03% White, 16.99% African American, and 33.4% Hispanic students. The school has consistently maintained high four-year graduation rates, ranging from 94.0% to 97.4% over the past five years, which are above the state and district averages. However, the school has experienced an increase in chronic absenteeism, rising from 9.7% in 2019-2020 to 26.1% in 2022-2023, which is higher than the district average of 38.0% for Seminole High School, but lower than the 85.7% rate at Aloma High Charter. Lyman High School's test scores, while generally lower than the district and state averages, show some areas of strength, such as higher proficiency rates in EOC/US History (69%) and FAST/English Language Arts for 10th grade (57%) compared to the state averages.

Lyman High School's performance is generally on par with or slightly below the nearby Seminole County high schools, such as Seminole High School, Lake Brantley High School, and Winter Springs High School. However, it outperforms the charter schools in the area, such as Elevation High School and Aloma High Charter, which have significantly lower test scores and graduation rates. The school's diverse student population is a strength, but it is important to ensure that all students have equal access to educational opportunities and support.

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.
