Manatee Cove Elementary School

Summary:

Manatee Cove Elementary School is a public elementary school in Orange City, Florida, serving 795 students in grades PK-5. The school is part of the Volusia school district, which is ranked 36 out of 68 districts in Florida and has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Manatee Cove Elementary faces several challenges, including a significant increase in chronic absenteeism, from 17.0% in 2019-2020 to 35.9% in 2022-2023, which is notably higher than the district and state averages. The school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math are consistently lower than the Volusia district and Florida state averages across all grade levels. For example, in 2023-2024, the school's 3rd grade ELA proficiency was 42% compared to 54% for Volusia and 55% for Florida. Additionally, Manatee Cove has a high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 58.33% to 70.44% over the past three years, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools.

Manatee Cove's performance lags behind many of the nearby schools, such as Timbercrest Elementary and Debary Elementary, which have higher test scores, lower chronic absenteeism, and better overall rankings. Addressing the underlying issues of high free/reduced lunch rates and chronic absenteeism could be a key focus for improvement at Manatee Cove Elementary School.

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.
