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 Top school in a superb community. Outstanding principal with high personal engagement. Exceptional PTSA.

MSP results for 2013/14 school year are not showing up in the listings here on schooldigger anymore as the scores were exceeding the 95% threshold in most of the categories. You see that the top listed schools here will have scores not higher than 95%, but that's not the real top-10. With the new enhanced suppression rules to protect student privacy any line on the school report card with a score exceeding that threshold will be published only as ">95%", i.e. the school will not show up here anymore

(You will have to look directly at the OSPI WA State Report card: http://reportcard.ospi.k12.wa.us/summary.aspx?groupLevel=District&schoolId=1461&reportLevel=School&year=2013-14) 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.
