Coyote Ridge Elementary School

Summary:

Coyote Ridge Elementary School is a public elementary school in Broomfield, Colorado, serving students from kindergarten to 5th grade as part of the Adams 12 Five Star Schools district. The school consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Colorado, with exceptional academic performance that exceeds both district and state averages.

Coyote Ridge Elementary School's students excel on Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) tests, with proficiency rates in English Language Arts and Math around 20-30 percentage points higher than the district and state averages. The school's 5th-grade students also outperformed the district and state in Science proficiency by a wide margin. This consistent high performance is a testament to the school's effective teaching practices, strong leadership, and supportive community. However, the school's predominantly white student population and low percentage of economically disadvantaged students suggest potential issues with equity and access to educational opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds.

When compared to nearby schools, Coyote Ridge Elementary School stands out as a top performer. Within the Adams 12 Five Star Schools district, the school consistently outperforms the district averages on CMAS tests. Compared to schools in the higher-ranked Boulder Valley School District, such as Emerald Elementary, Kohl Elementary, and Aspen Creek K-8, Coyote Ridge often matches or exceeds their performance, demonstrating its exceptional academic standing in the region.

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.
