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.

Open Quote Awful, unorganized, hopeless, careless staff, crummy, pathetic, appalling, disgraceful, just plain pitiful. I actually hate this school with my heart, soul, and spirit. The worst school I've ever been to. I'd rather go to school at a crack house in the middle of a farm with goats as teachers. If I could send this school to the bottomless pits of hell, I would in a heartbeat. This school ruined my entire life and it makes me want to unenroll myself and climb mount everest to join every dead person there. Please don't EVER send ANY child here. You're better off homeschooling them or better yet, not taking them to school at all. Lodestar is crusty and musty. Not to mention they only have 1 available bathroom with 3 stalls. People are always hanging out in the bathroom and doing prob weird stuff. None of the teachers can handle bad behavior and it's annoying it's always "No stop" "Please don't do that" "I'm going to call home!" like omg just send them to the principal or something or do yall not do that here? I don't know but the moment I get out of this prison (Lodestar) I'm writing the most disrespectful review EVER. Thank you for reading xoxo Close Quote

Open Quote I would have once cut this school a break due to its status as a new school. Now in its 6th year (and its 3rd principal) this school seems like an embodiment of all the complaints made against charter schools. Too many admin but not enough structure or follow through on the ground. Students are often seen running out of classrooms without supervison, classes being held in the open hallway due to lack of available classrooms, and apparently very little done in terms of response to behavior trainings for staff. New staff and families alike often comment of the chaotic atmosphere. Close Quote

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.
