Summary:

Greenwood Lakes Middle School is a public middle school in Lake Mary, Florida, serving around 1,000 students in grades 6-8 and part of the highly-ranked Seminole County School District. The school stands out for its diverse student population, strong academic performance, and unique socioeconomic factors compared to nearby schools.

Greenwood Lakes Middle School has a more racially diverse student body, with higher percentages of Hispanic (35.1%) and African American (18.4%) students than nearby schools like Tuskawilla Middle School and Teague Middle School. Academically, the school consistently outperforms the Seminole County and Florida state averages on key tests, including End-of-Course exams and 8th grade science.

This socioeconomic factor may present unique challenges but is offset by the school's higher per-student spending of $8,110, which could contribute to its strong academic performance. Overall, Greenwood Lakes Middle School appears to be a high-performing school within the Seminole County district, offering a diverse learning environment and preparing its students for success.

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.
