Vestaburg Community Alternative Education School Wyoming

Summary:

Vestaburg Community Alternative Education School Wyoming is a public virtual high school serving grades 9-12 in Wyoming, Michigan, part of the Vestaburg Community Schools district. The school has a diverse student population but has struggled academically, ranking 627 out of 735 Michigan high schools and receiving a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Vestaburg Community Alternative Education School Wyoming stands out for its extremely low four-year graduation rates, ranging from just 5% to 38.1% in recent years, much lower than the state average and nearby schools like Grand River Preparatory High School and Kelloggsville High School. The school has also experienced very high dropout rates, from 21.1% to 30.6%, and a dramatic increase in chronic absenteeism, from 16% to 94.3%. Its performance on state assessments is well below state averages, with only 16.7% of 11th graders proficient in Evidence-Based Reading and Writing on the SAT, compared to 52.2% statewide.

The data suggests that Vestaburg Community Alternative Education School Wyoming is in need of significant support and intervention to improve student outcomes. The school's high poverty rates, high percentage of minority students, and status as an alternative education program may all be contributing factors to its poor academic performance. Targeted strategies focused on increasing graduation rates, reducing chronic absenteeism, and boosting academic achievement could be crucial for the school's success in better serving its diverse student population.

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.
