Lewis & Clark has a significantly higher percentage of Hispanic students (73.57%) compared to the surrounding schools, which range from 54.28% to 65.34% Hispanic students. The school's academic performance, as measured by state assessments, is generally lower than the surrounding schools, such as Cardinal Elementary and Harney Elementary, as well as the state averages. For example, in 2022-2023, the school's 3rd-grade English Language Arts proficiency was 39%, compared to the state average of 63%. Additionally, Lewis & Clark has a very high percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 57.94% to 81.47% over the past few years, which is significantly higher than the surrounding schools.

Despite the high spending per student at Lewis & Clark, ranging from $13,626 to $17,855 over the past few years, the school's academic performance remains lower than the surrounding schools. This suggests that factors beyond just funding, such as instructional practices, teacher quality, and school leadership, may be contributing to the school's challenges. Interestingly, the nearby schools, such as Harney Elementary, generally outperform Lewis & Clark on state assessments, even though they also have high percentages of students from low-income families.

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.
