Kyrene de la Esperanza School

Summary:

Kyrene de la Esperanza School is an elementary school in Phoenix, Arizona, serving 467 students in grades PK-5. It is part of the Kyrene Elementary District, which is ranked 143 out of 540 districts in the state and has a 4-star rating. However, Kyrene de la Esperanza's statewide ranking has declined in recent years, dropping from 170 out of 955 Arizona elementary schools in 2014-2015 to 580 out of 1245 in the most recent 2022-2023 school year.

The school has a diverse student population, with a mix of White (28.27%), Hispanic (28.48%), African American (16.06%), Native American (9.64%), and other racial groups. Academically, Kyrene de la Esperanza's proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Mathematics are generally below the district and state averages, with significant disparities among different student subgroups. While Asian and White students perform relatively well, African American, Native American, and English Language Learner students struggle, with proficiency rates often below 30%. Nearby schools like Kyrene de la Mirada, Kyrene De Los Lagos, and Horizon Honors Elementary consistently outperform Kyrene de la Esperanza on academic measures.

Despite spending more per student than the state average, Kyrene de la Esperanza's academic performance lags behind some of the nearby higher-performing schools that spend less per student. This suggests that factors beyond just funding, such as instructional quality and targeted interventions, may be more important in driving student success. The school may need to closely examine its practices and support systems to better serve its diverse student population and improve overall academic 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.
