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 The problem with this school is that when the principal changes everything change .
This is my son's last year . When he was in second grade was diagnosed with ADHD. So we began to give him medicine after a lot of stress from the principal ( McAneny )
Then we struggled with him in third grade until he left . 4th grade .the best year ever with new principal ( Dr Taylor) amazing man . He was handling any problems and understand that ADHD kid needs more help.
This year the worst year ever . New principal ( Sasin)
All what she is doing is suspending kids and she never Tried to help the kids first to improve their behavior or education. The deal is if your kid has problems so she will force you and stress you until you leave the school. She Treated me and my wife very bad several times and I had to go school superattendant assistant.
That not only my opinion. My son's friend father told me the same 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.
