As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

Open Quote The two campus system was what first appealed to me as a parent. Freshman and Sophomores are at South Campus, Juniors and Seniors at The North Campus. This way you do not have the classic abuse of lower classmates, Seniors messing with Freshman, less corruption by older kids on younger.
There are around 1000 kids in each class. There is a huge opportunity for kids to find their social niche. There is no "Big Man on Campus" there are too many kids, activities and plenty of spotlights for diverse sets of kids. There are tons of clubs, sports, and an excellent TV station and award winning radio station as well as theater and dance classes and clubs.

LT grads are everywhere and stick together. I am very happy my kids went there. They had great teachers, a great education and a great experience. Close Quote

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.
