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 My son has been at RGE since 2016-17 when we moved down from the North Tahoe area. It was the best move of our lives! Not only is the neighborhood great, but the school is too! The teachers and staff are some of the most attentive and caring I’ve ever witnessed...and I went to a lot of schools growing up. Unlike most, the teachers here seem like they WANT to be here and actually enjoy their work. The parents are very involved as well. We work very hard at fundraising so the kids can have PE classes, musical and art classes and teachers aids where needed. I mean, I saw kid carry out a cello bigger then her! Another added benefit, I think, is the later start then most schools. They start at 9:30 and end at 3:30! I honestly saw an overall difference in my son’s behavior and performance with this change. Like many teachers who were once students here, I have a feeling we will be here a long time. Close Quote

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.
