Michael M Boone Elementary

Summary:

Michael M Boone Elementary is a public elementary school in Dallas, Texas, serving 446 students in grades KG-4. The school is part of the Highland Park Independent School District (HPISD), which is ranked 2 out of 968 districts in Texas and rated 5 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

Michael M Boone Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Texas, ranking 7th out of 4,647 schools in the 2022-2023 school year. The school's students have consistently high proficiency rates in STAAR Reading and Mathematics, significantly outperforming the state and district averages. However, the student population at Michael M Boone Elementary is predominantly White, with 86.77% of students identifying as White in the 2022-2023 school year, which is significantly higher than the racial diversity of the nearby Dallas Independent School District (DISD) schools. Additionally, the school has a very low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, with only 0.65% of students receiving this benefit in the 2021-2022 school year, suggesting that the school serves a relatively affluent student population.

When compared to the nearby DISD schools, Michael M Boone Elementary stands out as a high-performing school with a significantly different student population and socioeconomic profile. The school has a low student-teacher ratio of 12.8 in the 2022-2023 school year, which is lower than the nearby DISD schools and the state average. This highlights the disparities in educational opportunities and resources between the HPISD and DISD schools, raising questions about equity and access to quality education for all students in the Dallas area.

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.

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.
