Orchard School stands out for its diverse student population, with 72.12% White, 13.14% Hispanic, 6.41% Pacific Islander, and 4.17% two or more races. This diversity is higher than nearby schools like Valley View, Boulton, and Muir, which have student populations over 70% White.

The school also has a relatively low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 12.72% to 14.1% over the past three school years.

While Orchard School's academic performance is consistent with the district and state, it lags behind some of the higher-performing nearby schools like Valley View and Boulton, which have significantly higher proficiency rates. However, Orchard School's lower student-teacher ratio of 22.2 may be a contributing factor to its academic performance, as smaller class sizes can allow for more individualized attention and support. Overall, Orchard School appears to be a solid, well-rounded elementary school serving a diverse student population, with opportunities to learn from the successes of nearby high-performing schools to further improve student outcomes.

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.
