Sauk Rapids-Rice Public Schools


The Sauk Rapids-Rice Public Schools district in Minnesota consists of 6 schools, including 4 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, serving students from early childhood through 12th grade. The district's performance shows a mix of strengths and areas for improvement, with some standout schools like Pleasantview Elementary and Rice Elementary leading the way in academic achievement, while others struggle to meet state averages.

Pleasantview Elementary and Rice Elementary stand out as the top-performing schools in the district, with consistently high test scores in both math and reading. Pleasantview Elementary boasts the second-best student-teacher ratio among the elementary schools, while Rice Elementary excels in math performance, with grade 4 students scoring significantly higher than the district and state averages. However, the district as a whole faces challenges, with test scores generally below state averages, particularly in math, and a significant proportion of economically disadvantaged students, as indicated by the high free/reduced lunch rates across the schools.

The data also reveals disparities in racial diversity and performance among the schools, with Sauk Rapids-Rice Senior High and Sauk Rapids-Rice Middle School having the most diverse student populations, while Rice Elementary has the least diverse student body. These findings suggest the need for the district to address issues of equity and ensure that all students, regardless of their background, have access to a quality education.
