Hope High School

Summary:

Hope High School is a small public charter high school in Phoenix, Arizona, serving 141 students in grades 9-12. The school's student population is predominantly Hispanic (68.79%), with significant representation from African American (19.86%), White (5.67%), Native American (3.55%), and Asian (1.42%) students.

Despite its small size, Hope High School faces significant academic challenges. The school consistently ranks in the bottom quartile of Arizona high schools, with a 1-2 star rating from SchoolDigger, indicating very low performance compared to its peers. Hope High School struggles with low graduation rates, ranging from 16.5% to 39.6% over the past five years, and high dropout rates, ranging from 15.9% to 32.7% during the same period. These metrics are significantly worse than the state and district averages. Additionally, Hope High School students perform poorly on standardized tests, with proficiency rates well below the state and district averages, such as only 5% of 11th-grade students being proficient in English Language Arts, compared to the state average of 40%.

The nearby schools, such as Maricopa Institute of Technology, University High School, and Tolleson Union High School, significantly outperform Hope High School across various metrics, including academic performance, graduation rates, and test scores. This highlights the stark contrast in educational outcomes between Hope High School and its surrounding schools. Despite being in operation for over a decade, Hope High School has not shown consistent improvement in its academic performance or student outcomes, suggesting a need for significant interventions and support to address the underlying issues.

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.
