Open Quote Chippewa could be a great school if they would get their act together. They do not make parents aware of things. If your child gets hurt at school, a note will not be sent home. If you call in to ask about any injury, everyone will point the finger to someone else. The Health Aide is extremely rude. Parents are not notified of things happening in a timely manner. At one point in 2014 portions of childrens lunches were being thrown away because staff assumed they contained nuts, without reading the ingredients to confirm. Children were left w/ out complete lunches and parents were never notified that this was happening. 8 weeks into the year some parents were told that nonperishable parts of their kids lunches were in a box in the office and they could "sort through it". The teachers and district nurse are amazing but the administration is severely lacking. The health aide needs to be replaced. 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.
