Blind Pk-8 School (Fsdb)

Summary:

Blind Pk-8 School (Fsdb) is a small public elementary and middle school in St. Augustine, Florida, serving grades PK-8 and part of the Deaf/Blind district, which is ranked 67th out of 67 districts in the state. Despite its small size of 72 students, the school stands out from the nearby high-performing schools in several key ways.

Blind Pk-8 School (Fsdb) has a more diverse student population, with a higher percentage of minority students compared to the surrounding schools. However, the school lags behind in academic performance, with significantly lower test scores than the state and district averages. For example, only 12% of 8th-grade students were proficient or better in Statewide Science/Science, compared to 44% statewide. The school also has a concerning chronic absenteeism rate of 46.1%, much higher than the other schools in the area, such as Otis A. Mason Elementary School and R.B. Hunt Elementary School.

Despite the high per-student spending of $41,158 and a very low student-teacher ratio of 4.2 students per teacher, Blind Pk-8 School (Fsdb) is not achieving the same level of academic success as the nearby schools. This suggests that the school may not be effectively utilizing its resources or that there are other factors contributing to the poor performance. Addressing the underlying causes of the high chronic absenteeism and implementing strategies to support student success should be a top priority for the school and the St. Johns district.

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.
