Best Public Schools in Zip Code 56304


The 56304 zip code area in Minnesota is home to two elementary schools - Talahi Community Elementary and Lincoln Elementary. Both schools serve predominantly African American student populations from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, with high rates of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.

Academically, neither school stands out as a standout performer. Both Talahi Community Elementary and Lincoln Elementary have significantly lower proficiency rates on the MCA-III assessments in math, reading, and science compared to state and district averages for the St. Cloud Public School District. This suggests that the schools face significant challenges in supporting student academic achievement, likely due to the high levels of economic disadvantage among their student populations.

Despite having relatively low student-teacher ratios, the schools have not been able to translate this into better academic outcomes for their students. The consistent low rankings of these schools on the statewide SchoolDigger rankings over the years indicate that they require additional support and resources to address the underlying factors impacting student success, such as socioeconomic status and access to educational opportunities.
