Skyview Elementary School

Summary:

Skyview Elementary School is a public elementary school located in Thornton, Colorado, serving 357 students in grades K-5. The school is part of the Adams 12 Five Star Schools district, which is ranked 51 out of 115 districts in Colorado and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Skyview Elementary faces several key challenges, including lower academic performance compared to the district and state averages. Only 29.9% of Skyview students were proficient or better in English Language Arts in 2022-2023, compared to 40.9% in the district and 43.7% statewide. The school's Hispanic and low socioeconomic status (SES) student subgroups perform better than the overall school, ranking 63rd and 213th out of Colorado elementary schools, respectively, in 2022-2023. However, the school's female and male student subgroups perform worse, ranking 502nd and 517th, respectively. Skyview has consistently ranked in the bottom half of Colorado elementary schools, with a ranking of 617 out of 933 schools in 2022-2023 and a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Skyview's diverse student population, with a significant Hispanic majority and a sizable White and Asian minority, is not reflected in the school's academic performance, suggesting potential opportunities for targeted interventions and support. The school's high free and reduced lunch rate, at 45.94%, coupled with its lower academic performance, suggests that Skyview may face challenges related to socioeconomic factors and the need for additional support and resources. Nearby schools, such as Prairie Hills Elementary and Eagleview Elementary, have higher test scores and better overall rankings, indicating that Skyview may have room for improvement in its instructional practices and resource allocation.

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.
