Alicia Sanchez International School serves a significantly more diverse and economically disadvantaged student population compared to the nearby schools. The school has a much higher percentage of Hispanic students (66.18%) than the surrounding schools, which range from 8.69% to 28.63% Hispanic students. Additionally, Alicia Sanchez International School has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 68.06% to 74.34% over the past three years, much higher than the nearby schools, which range from 5.54% to 42.95%. However, the school's academic performance, as measured by CMAS proficiency rates, is consistently lower than the district and state averages, with the school's 5th-grade science proficiency rate at just 10.2% in 2022-2023, compared to 53.9% for the Boulder Valley School District and 33.9% for the state.

Despite the school's low academic performance, Alicia Sanchez International School has a relatively low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 9.9 to 11.2 over the past three years, which is lower than the nearby schools. This may indicate a focus on providing more individualized attention to students, which could be a potential strength of the school. However, further investigation is needed to understand the underlying factors contributing to the school's academic performance and to identify strategies for improvement.

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 Excellent teachers and great administration. My son is thriving in this school. He likes going and is doing great in math. The energy in this school is really amazing. This school thinks out of the box, which is great to see. Don't let low test scores scare you away, visit the school for yourself and see! Close Quote

Open Quote We have had numerous problems with this school. The final was that they WITHDREW my student with no paperwork done and signed by myself or the school district. They then took over an hour to call me after I had dropped my student off at school to let me know that they was no longer attending there and that he was sitting with the school counselor... The vice principal and principal and insulting and rude if you call out a teacher for mistreating a student, the teachers are unwilling to work with a student who is new to the district and unfamiliar with their teaching style. Do not send you children to this school, you will be greatly disappointed. 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.
