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 I am on my third child now going through Kenbrook Elementary School and the teachers are amazing. My kids have loved everyone of their teachers and I feel like my children are well prepared for middle school. Close Quote

Open Quote I think if the teachers really liked their job they would do a lot better. It's clear that the new to teaching 2nd grade teacher who was moved from 3rd grade really didn't like the switch and it showed from the first day of school while all she did was complain about being moved and how her stuff was not all moved etc etc etc. Then when my child comes home during testing and tells us how the teacher looked over all the tests and made them "Go back over" and correct their answers" till they got them right. The State and County really need to take a closer look at the Teachers and Administration and how they conduct these State tests. The Teachers may look good because of the false test scores, but YOU ARE HURTING OUR CHILDREN ! 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.
