Mater Academy East

Summary:

Mater Academy East is a public charter school in Las Vegas, Nevada, serving 1,903 students in grades PK-11. The school is part of the State-Sponsored Charter Schools district, which is ranked 2nd out of 12 districts in Nevada and has a 5-star rating.

Despite being part of a high-performing district, Mater Academy East faces significant challenges. The school has consistently had 100% of its students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, indicating a high-need student population. Academically, Mater Academy East lags behind its peers, with only 25.8% of students proficient in mathematics and 33.3% proficient in reading, compared to the district's 44.3% and 53.3% respectively. Additionally, the school has a high student-teacher ratio of 42.8, significantly higher than nearby Pinecrest Academy of Nevada Sloan Canyon, Somerset Academy Sky Pointe, and Amplus Durango, which range from 21.5 to 28.9 students per teacher.

The combination of a high-need student population, low academic performance, and high student-teacher ratio suggests that Mater Academy East faces significant challenges in providing a high-quality education to its students. However, this also presents an opportunity for the school to identify and address the root causes of the achievement gap, potentially through targeted interventions, professional development for teachers, and strategies to improve the learning environment and student engagement.

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.
