Synergy Public School

Summary:

Synergy Public School is an elementary school serving grades K-8 in Phoenix, Arizona, with a diverse student population of 595 students, the majority of whom are Hispanic (82.52%). The school is part of the Synergy Public School Inc. district, which is ranked 452 out of 540 districts in Arizona and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Synergy Public School consistently performs below the state average on standardized tests across all grade levels and subject areas. For example, in 2022-2023, only 13% of 5th graders and 16% of 8th graders were proficient or better in science, compared to the state averages of 34% and 27%, respectively. In English Language Arts, proficiency rates ranged from 15% to 41% across grades, well below the state averages of 37% to 45%. In Mathematics, proficiency rates were even lower, ranging from 2% to 19%, compared to the state averages of 27% to 43%. The school has a very low statewide ranking, consistently placing in the bottom 10-15% of Arizona elementary schools, and its performance is particularly low for certain student subgroups, such as Hispanic students, English Language Learners, and students with special needs.

The nearby schools, such as Empower College Prep, Ocotillo School, and Cordova Elementary School, generally perform better than Synergy Public School on academic measures, with higher proficiency rates and better statewide rankings. This suggests that Synergy Public School may be struggling to provide a quality education compared to its peers in the local area. Additionally, the school's high percentage of students from low-income families (78.82% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch) likely contributes to its academic struggles, as research has shown that poverty can be a significant barrier to student achievement.

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.
