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 Wow! There seems to be a big difference in how certain people feel about Floral Park Bellerose School. Perhaps some people want change, while others are happy with being status quo - doing what the state says, not involving critical thinking, teaching to a test, etc.. What I do find most disturbing is that the residents of the town are not very respectful to one another. Suggesting people should move because they disagree with what others consider the norm, is downright rude. No matter how good or bad a school is, there is always room for changes and improvements. I give this school 2 stars because of the behavior of the adults. Close Quote

Open Quote Floral Park is a great community with wonderful schools both at the elementary and high school. As with any community there are a small handful of naysayers who hate everything and everyone. This school has been great for my children and I'm proud to be part of the PTA and school community. The teachers and administrators are extremely responsive. There are always a few bad apples and they seize any moment to try to make our district look bad. Too bad they don't move if things are so bad. The vast majority of people are happy as are our children. Great education and still one of the lowest per pupil spending on Long Island . Thank you.

Open Quote The students, parents and teachers are miserable in this school. The only people that seem to be happy are the highly overpaid administrators. All the administrators care about are test scores. There is no creativity or free thinking. Only a few minutes for recess each day too (if any). This school is very pro common core. All they do is test prep. There is no real learning. 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.
