Park Community Charter School

Summary:

Park Community Charter School is an elementary public charter school located in Kaukauna, Wisconsin, serving grades PK-4 with a total enrollment of 268 students. The school is part of the Kaukauna Area School District, which is ranked 97 out of 424 districts in Wisconsin and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Park Community Charter School outperforms the Kaukauna Area School District and the state of Wisconsin in several academic areas, with higher proficiency rates in 3rd grade English Language Arts, 3rd grade Mathematics, and 4th grade Social Studies. The school also ranks highly for its performance with special education students and low socioeconomic status students. However, the school's chronic absenteeism rate has been a concern, with a significant improvement from the 2021-2022 school year to the 2022-2023 school year.

Interestingly, Park Community Charter School's performance is notably lower than the nearby New Directions Learning Community, another public charter school in the Kaukauna Area School District. New Directions Learning Community ranked 28th out of 1,067 Wisconsin elementary schools in 2022-2023 and had significantly higher proficiency rates across all tested subjects. Additionally, Park Community Charter School's statewide ranking has declined over the years, suggesting the school may be struggling to maintain its academic performance compared to other schools in the state.

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.
