Route 66 Elementary

Summary:

Route 66 Elementary is a public elementary school located in Moriarty, New Mexico, serving grades K-5 with a total enrollment of 304 students. The school is part of the Moriarty-Edgewood School District, which is ranked 47th out of 119 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

While Route 66 Elementary has a higher percentage of White (44.41%) and Hispanic (51.97%) students compared to nearby schools, its academic performance is generally lower than the state averages and the top-ranked school in the district, South Mountain Elementary. The school's proficiency rates in Language Arts (34%), Mathematics (24%), and Science (35%) for the 2022-2023 school year are all below the state's benchmarks. Additionally, Route 66 Elementary's rankings for specific student subgroups, such as Female Students, Male Students, Hispanic Students, and White Students, are mostly in the middle to lower range compared to other New Mexico elementary schools.

One of the most significant challenges facing Route 66 Elementary is the high level of economic disadvantage among its student population, with 100% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. This high poverty rate may be contributing to the school's declining academic performance, which has dropped from a statewide ranking of 64th out of 412 schools in 2012-2013 to 215th out of 435 schools in 2022-2023. The school's struggles are particularly evident in the low rankings for English Language Learners and Special Education students, indicating that these groups may not be receiving adequate support.

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.
