The high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch across the schools indicates a significant level of economic disadvantage in the East Elmhurst community, which may be an important factor to consider when analyzing the schools' performance and resource needs. Additionally, the wide range in spending per student, from $14,837 at Is 227 Louis Armstrong to $29,050 at Ivan Lafayette Early Childhood School Of The Arts (The), suggests potential inequities in resource allocation across the district, which may impact educational outcomes.
