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 Principal Rafael Montelongo and his amazing staff run a top notch school where kids and parents and teachers all feel appreciated as they actively participate in pursuit of a positive learning environment. The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) program definitely helps foster more fatherly volunteerism which enhances the feeling safety and security at school. Oregon's premiere elementary school...

Open Quote I used to go to Bethany in 4th and 5th grade. It was one of the best and friendliest schools I ever went to. I felt like teachers actually cared about what I did, and did their absolute best. I had some of my highest test scores there (where on the OAKS I think I scored about 252), and I made some of my best friends. There's really no school like this one, and I'm not surprised it's better than 99.9% of all other schools. -Wolfgang Stolte 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.
