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 went there my 6th and 7th year.... I had an AMAZING time, I had the best teachers, and met a lot of great people. Made some of my best friends there. I think that the teachers are very helpful and teach in very understandable ways. Overall I had an EXCELLENT time there. Close Quote

Open Quote This school is unwilling to take in consideration that some children are dealing with crises like death, divorce, losing homes, and are unwilling to work with parents and the students. Communication was very poor and deceiving from the vice principal and the principal was not informed or just did not want to be bothered with the situation at hand. When Clayton says they are like a wolf pack they are not kidding this school treats every one the same and not as people with individual circumstances or situations. Clayton would rather suspend a student to make an example out of them then to give detention so the child will learn from there mistakes. 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.
