Weber Elementary School

Summary:

Weber Elementary School is a public elementary school in Arvada, Colorado, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the Jefferson County School District No. R-1. While the school has a higher percentage of White students compared to nearby schools, its academic performance, as measured by state test scores, is generally lower than the district and state averages.

Weber Elementary School's proficiency rates in English Language Arts (41.2%) and Math (34.5%) for the 2022-2023 school year were below the Jefferson County School District No. R-1 (50.8% and 38.7%, respectively) and the state of Colorado (43.7% and 32.9%, respectively). The school has consistently ranked in the lower half of Colorado elementary schools, placing it in the 2-star category on the SchoolDigger rating system. Notably, the school's performance varies significantly among different student subgroups, with male students and White students performing better than their female and low-income peers.

Compared to nearby schools in the same district, such as Hackberry Hill Elementary School and Warder Elementary School, Weber Elementary School's academic performance and rankings are significantly lower. This suggests that there may be opportunities for improvement at Weber Elementary through targeted interventions and a focus on equity and excellence, particularly for underperforming student subgroups.

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.
