Forest Lake Elementary School

Summary:

Forest Lake Elementary School is a public elementary school in Deltona, Florida, serving 476 students in grades PK-5 as part of the Volusia District, which is ranked 34 out of 67 districts in the state and rated 3 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

While Forest Lake Elementary's overall performance is generally on par with or slightly below the district and state averages, the school stands out in a few key areas. Its 3rd grade Math proficiency rate of 68% is significantly higher than the Friendship Elementary (57%) and The Reading Edge Academy (57%) averages. However, the school faces challenges, such as a relatively high chronic absenteeism rate ranging from 21.8% to 26.2% over the past few years, which is higher than the state and district averages, as well as most of the nearby schools.

The high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch at Forest Lake Elementary, ranging from 62.39% to 72.31%, suggests the school serves a relatively disadvantaged population. This could be a factor in the school's overall performance, as socioeconomic status is often correlated with academic achievement. Additionally, the school's higher per-student spending compared to nearby schools, ranging from $9,566 to $12,072, could indicate that it is receiving additional resources or funding to support its students, though higher spending does not necessarily translate to better academic outcomes.

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.
