Somerset Academy Losee

Summary:

Somerset Academy Losee is a public charter school in North Las Vegas, Nevada, serving students from kindergarten through 12th grade. The school is part of the State-Sponsored Charter Schools district, which is ranked 2nd out of 12 districts in Nevada and is rated 5 stars out of 5 by SchoolDigger.

One of the key features of Somerset Academy Losee is its diverse student population, with a higher percentage of Hispanic (52.88%) and African American (21.22%) students compared to nearby charter schools like Pinecrest Academy of Nevada Cadence, Amplus Durango, and Doral Academy Red Rock. While the school's overall test scores are generally lower than the state-sponsored charter school average, it has some notable strengths, such as higher proficiency rates in 3rd and 4th grade mathematics, as well as 5th grade reading, compared to the state average.

Another interesting aspect of Somerset Academy Losee is its relatively high percentage of students (45.29%) receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a higher proportion of students from low-income families. This, coupled with the school's lower spending per student compared to nearby charter schools, may present challenges in providing resources and support to meet the needs of its diverse student population. However, the school's unique demographics and areas of academic strength suggest opportunities for targeted interventions and support to help the school achieve greater success.

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.
