Royal Valley Elementary

Summary:

Royal Valley Elementary is a public elementary school located in Hoyt, Kansas, serving grades PK-4 with a total enrollment of 363 students. The school is part of the Royal Valley District, which is ranked 88 out of 269 districts in Kansas and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

One of the most notable aspects of Royal Valley Elementary is its high percentage of Native American students, at 28.93% - significantly higher than the nearby schools, which range from 0% to 2.44% Native American students. While the school performs better than the state average in mathematics, it lags behind in English Language Arts, particularly in 3rd grade. Additionally, Royal Valley Elementary has a higher percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (54.82%) compared to the nearby schools, which range from 18.78% to 95.12%. However, the school has a relatively low student-teacher ratio of 12.6, lower than most of the nearby schools.

When comparing Royal Valley Elementary to the nearby schools, some interesting patterns emerge. For example, Silver Lake Elementary, which is only 12.51 miles away, consistently outperforms Royal Valley Elementary on the KAP tests and has a higher overall ranking from SchoolDigger. This suggests that there may be opportunities for Royal Valley Elementary to learn from the practices and strategies of higher-performing schools in the region. Additionally, Royal Valley Elementary's ranking and star rating from SchoolDigger have fluctuated over the years, indicating that the school's performance may be inconsistent and could benefit from a more stable and sustained approach to improving student outcomes.

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.
