DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School

Summary:

DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School is a public charter school in Denver, Colorado that serves 476 students in grades 6-8. The school faces some challenges, with lower academic performance and a high percentage of students from low-income families compared to nearby schools.

DSST: Conservatory Green has a diverse student population, with a high percentage of Hispanic (67%) and African American (17%) students. However, the school's racial diversity has declined in recent years, with the percentage of white students dropping from 13% to just 7%. Academically, the school's proficiency rates in English Language Arts (32%) and Math (20%) are significantly below the state averages. This is in contrast to higher-performing nearby schools like McAuliffe International School and Denver Green School Northfield.

One potential strength of DSST: Conservatory Green is its relatively low student-teacher ratio of 14.3, compared to 19.0 at McAuliffe International and 19.3 at Kearney Middle School. However, the school's performance has been inconsistent, with its statewide ranking fluctuating from 196 out of 458 Colorado middle schools in 2018-2019 to 330 out of 480 in 2022-2023. Additionally, the school's high percentage of students (74%) who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch suggests a relatively low-income student population compared to nearby schools.

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.
