Folger Mckinsey Elementary

Summary:

Folger Mckinsey Elementary is a top-performing public elementary school in Severna Park, Maryland, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the Anne Arundel County Public Schools district.

Folger Mckinsey Elementary has consistently been one of the highest-ranking elementary schools in Maryland, with exceptional academic performance that significantly outpaces the county and state averages in mathematics, English language arts, and science. In the 2022-2023 school year, the school ranked 39th out of 855 Maryland elementary schools and received a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. However, the school's student population is predominantly White, with relatively low percentages of minority students compared to nearby schools and the county/state averages. Additionally, Folger Mckinsey serves a relatively affluent community, with only 5.19% of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, much lower than the surrounding schools.

While Folger Mckinsey Elementary's academic performance is exceptional, some of the nearby schools, such as Benfield Elementary and Severna Park Elementary, also demonstrate strong academic achievement and high rankings within the state. These schools may provide valuable insights and best practices that could be shared with Folger Mckinsey Elementary to further enhance its educational program and address the lack of racial diversity in its student population.

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.
