Ketterlinus Elementary School

Summary:

Ketterlinus Elementary School is a public elementary school in St. Augustine, Florida, serving 402 students in grades PK-5 and part of the highly-ranked St. Johns School District.

Ketterlinus Elementary consistently outperforms state and district averages in academic achievement, with 69-79% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and Math, compared to state averages of 50-58% and 59-61%, respectively. The school also has a relatively diverse student population, with 72.39% White, 10.2% African American, and 9.7% Hispanic students. However, Ketterlinus has seen fluctuating chronic absenteeism rates, ranging from 12.6% to 20.1% over the past few years, which is an area of concern. The school also has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 40.98% to 47.49%, indicating a larger proportion of economically disadvantaged students.

Compared to nearby schools, Ketterlinus generally outperforms James A. Webster Elementary and Osceola Elementary in academic metrics, but lags behind the highly-ranked R.B. Hunt Elementary. This suggests that Ketterlinus is a strong performer within the district, but there is room for improvement to reach the highest levels of academic achievement. The school's diverse student population and increasing per-student funding, from $11,141 in 2019-2020 to $14,386 in 2022-2023, are positive indicators for the school's future.

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.
