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 classes are crowded. The teachers & counselors are overworked and underpaid. So quality of education is not very good. The school does well because kids are from families that take interest in their child's development.

Some teachers may place questions on exams that require subject knowledge beyond what has been covered in class. This practice may result in bright kids getting low grades, who do their homework and understand the material. For example, we have a child who was getting Cs and low Bs in algebra and geometry, so we thought he did not have aptitude for mathematics. Based on these grades, we were starting to guide him away from math and toward the arts. However, when he took the SAT at the end of sophomore year, it turned out he was nationally in the top 5% in mathematics.

So, now we simply discount a lot of what his teachers and their grades have to say and pay attention to standardized test scores, to chart a career path for our child. If you want your kids to do well academically at this school, put them in summer programs and get them private tutoring etc. This is important because a lot of colleges rely on these GPAs to give admission in colleges.

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.
