Manchester Park Elementary

Summary:

Manchester Park Elementary is a public elementary school in Lenexa, Kansas, serving grades PK-5 with a total enrollment of 594 students. The school is part of the Olathe School District, which is ranked 47th out of 269 districts in Kansas and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Manchester Park Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Kansas, with a statewide ranking between 20th and 60th out of over 660 schools in recent years. The school's students consistently outperform the state and Olathe district averages in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science proficiency rates across all grade levels. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, 62.72% of Manchester Park students were proficient or better in English Language Arts, compared to 41.65% in the Olathe district and 33.17% statewide. The school also has a relatively homogeneous student population, with 79.12% of students identifying as White, and a lower percentage of economically disadvantaged students, with only 9.26% qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch.

Manchester Park Elementary's academic excellence is achieved with relatively fewer resources compared to some nearby schools, such as Forest View Elementary and Mahaffie Elementary. The school has a lower student-teacher ratio of 16 students per teacher and lower per-student spending of $8,659 in the 2018-2019 school year. This suggests efficient resource allocation and effective teaching practices, but it also raises questions about the potential impact of additional resources on student outcomes.

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.

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.
