Estancia Valley Classical Academy

Summary:

Estancia Valley Classical Academy is a public charter school located in Edgewood, New Mexico, serving 626 students from kindergarten through 12th grade. The school consistently outperforms the state average in academic proficiency, with particularly strong results in 11th-grade Language Arts and Science. However, the school's student population is predominantly white, and it serves a lower percentage of students from low-income families compared to nearby schools like Manzano High and Abq School Of Excellence.

Estancia Valley Classical Academy's academic performance is impressive, with proficiency rates of 52% in Language Arts, 36% in Mathematics, and 53% in Science, significantly higher than the state averages of 38%, 24%, and 34%, respectively. The school's 11th-grade students achieved exceptional proficiency rates, with 87.8% proficient or better in both Language Arts and Science. This suggests that the school's emphasis on classical education and rigorous curriculum is providing a strong educational foundation for its students.

However, the school's racial composition is notably different from the surrounding schools, with a predominantly white student population (61.98%) and relatively low percentages of African American (0.16%) and Asian (1.12%) students. Additionally, the school has a relatively low percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (21.73%), which is significantly lower than the nearby Manzano High (100%) and Abq School Of Excellence (54.84%). This suggests that the school may not be as accessible or inclusive for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, which could be an area for improvement.

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.

Open Quote This school's environment is toxic. Bullying is rampant and ignored. Selfish administrators are deceitful and are often elitist. Because there is no sports program, EVCA chooses to make homework the new sport, a sport which ate away hours of my child's time and happiness. If you have a happy, well-adjusted child, keep him out of EVCA. Close Quote

Open Quote The curriculum is great, they really push the kids but they pride themselves on the "rigorous" and "willing" piece of their mission so any kid not performing well is deemed not "willing" and they will just leave them behind. I have seen teachers take away essential tools such as a writing board because a child (in kindergarten) is not on task so they are then unable to complete the assignment. They demand the student is on task all the time, even when my daughter had a 102 fever she got in trouble for not being on task. The teachers are very unwelcoming to parents and even though volunteering is a requirement they often make it difficult to volunteer, the office staff will not communicate with you when you are volunteering. My children all told me mom I don't want to go to school there, anywhere but there! Their teacher even made them hold their cupcakes another student passed out for a birthday while they were being picked up rather than allowing 10 minutes to let them eat them in class (3rd grade).

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.
