Despite its small class sizes, with a relatively low student-teacher ratio ranging from 13.6 to 14.8 over the past three years, Colorado Sports Leadership Academy consistently underperforms compared to the district and state averages on standardized tests.

The school ranks very low among Colorado elementary schools, placing 894th out of 933 schools in the 2022-2023 school year and receiving a 0-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Compared to the nearby schools, such as Metropolitan Arts Academy, Orchard Park Academy, and Sherrelwood Elementary School, Colorado Sports Leadership Academy has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students and a lower percentage of White students. These nearby schools generally outperform Colorado Sports Leadership Academy on academic measures, with higher proficiency rates in CMAS English Language Arts and Math. The high percentage of economically disadvantaged students at Colorado Sports Leadership Academy may contribute to the school's academic challenges.

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.
