Windsor Charter Academy Elementary School

Summary:

Windsor Charter Academy Elementary School is a public charter school serving 778 students in grades K-5 in Windsor, Colorado, which is part of the Weld County Reorganized School District No. Re-4. The school consistently outperforms the district and state averages in academic assessments, has a strong Gifted and Talented program, and maintains a relatively low student-teacher ratio compared to nearby public schools.

Windsor Charter Academy Elementary School stands out for its exceptional academic performance, with 65.4% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts and 58% proficient or better in Math, significantly higher than the district and state averages. The school's Gifted and Talented program is also noteworthy, ranking 8th out of 82 Colorado elementary schools in this category. Additionally, the school has a low student-teacher ratio, ranging from 19.9 to 20.5 over the past three years, which is lower than the nearby public schools like West Ridge Academy, Bethke Elementary School, and Winograd K-8 Elementary School.

However, the school's student population is predominantly White (81.36%), which is notably different from the more diverse student populations at nearby public schools in the Greeley School District No. 6 and Poudre School District R-1. Additionally, Windsor Charter Academy Elementary School has a low percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 8.39% to 9% over the past three years, which is significantly lower than the nearby public schools. These factors suggest the school may be attracting a more affluent and less diverse student population compared to the surrounding area.

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.
