Rocky Mountain Prep: Fletcher

Summary:

Rocky Mountain Prep: Fletcher is a public charter elementary school serving 571 students in grades PK-5 in Aurora, Colorado, which is part of the Aurora Joint District No. 28, a low-performing school district.

While Rocky Mountain Prep: Fletcher has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (69%) compared to surrounding schools, the school consistently underperforms the state and district averages on standardized tests, with proficiency rates of just 27.4% in English Language Arts and 21.8% in Math, far below the state averages of 43.7% and 32.9%, respectively. The school's performance is particularly low for its Hispanic and English Language Learner student subgroups, ranking in the bottom 30% of Colorado elementary schools for these populations. Additionally, Rocky Mountain Prep: Fletcher has a very high percentage of students (79.51%) who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high level of economic disadvantage among the student body.

Interestingly, the surrounding schools in the Aurora Joint District No. 28 generally perform poorly on academic measures as well, with most ranking in the bottom 10-20% of Colorado elementary schools. This suggests that the low performance of Rocky Mountain Prep: Fletcher may be reflective of broader challenges facing the district. However, the school's inconsistent ranking trends over the past few years, from 677 out of 710 schools in 2020-2021 to 728 out of 933 schools in 2022-2023, indicate that there may be opportunities for improvement through targeted interventions and a focus on evidence-based instructional practices.

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.
