Sperry High School

Summary:

Sperry High School is a public high school serving 329 students in grades 9-12 in Sperry, Oklahoma, which is part of the Sperry School District. The school has a diverse student population and some areas of academic strength, but also faces challenges in maintaining consistent performance compared to nearby schools.

Sperry High School stands out for its relatively diverse student body, with 48.33% White, 12.16% Hispanic, 24.62% Native American, and 12.77% two or more races. The school performs particularly well in certain subgroups, ranking 42nd out of 187 Oklahoma high schools for its Native American students and 49th out of 184 for its special education students, both with a 4-star rating. Additionally, the school ranks 74th out of 380 for its low socioeconomic status students, also with a 4-star rating. However, the school's overall academic performance has been inconsistent, with its statewide ranking ranging from 45th out of 197 schools in 2016-2017 to 199th out of 439 schools in 2022-2023.

Compared to nearby schools, Sperry High School generally performs better than lower-ranked schools like KIPP Tulsa University Prep, Tulsa Met High School, Central High School, and Traice. However, it lags behind higher-performing schools like Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences and Owasso High School. The significant increase in the percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, from 29.78% in 2020-2021 to 56.23% in 2022-2023, suggests the school may be serving a growing population of students from lower-income families, which could be a contributing factor to its academic performance.

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.
