Toltec Elementary School

Summary:

Toltec Elementary School is an alternative public school serving grades PK-12 in Eloy, Arizona, with a total enrollment of 389 students. The school is part of the Toltec School District, which is ranked 522 out of 540 school districts in Arizona and has a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Toltec Elementary School faces significant challenges, including a student population that is predominantly Hispanic (65.55%) compared to the state average of 45.4%, and consistently underperforming the state and district averages in standardized test scores across all grade levels and subjects. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, only 2% of 5th-grade students were proficient or better in Science, compared to the district average of 7% and the state average of 34%. The school also experiences relatively high dropout rates, ranging from 1.6% to 5.6% over the past five school years, which is higher than the state average.

Additionally, Toltec Elementary School has a very high percentage of students (76.86%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student population. The school's spending per student has fluctuated significantly over the past four school years, ranging from $2,554 to $10,544 per student, which may contribute to the school's academic struggles and high dropout rates. To address these challenges, the school may need to implement targeted interventions and support programs to meet the unique needs of its diverse student population.

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.
