Founders Classical Academy-Bastrop

Summary:

Founders Classical Academy-Bastrop is a public charter school serving grades 4-9 in Bastrop, Texas, with a relatively small student population of 103 as of the 2022-2023 school year. The school is part of the Texas College Preparatory Academies district, which is ranked 423 out of 968 districts in the state and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Founders Classical Academy-Bastrop stands out for its strong academic performance, particularly in reading and end-of-course exams. The school consistently outperforms the state and district averages on STAAR tests, with 93% proficiency in English I Reading compared to 83% for the district and 54% for the state. Additionally, the school has a very low student-teacher ratio of 10:1, suggesting a more personalized learning environment for students. However, the school's student population has a higher percentage of white students (56.31%) compared to the state average, and a lower percentage of African American (0.97%) and Hispanic (36.89%) students, indicating a need to address racial diversity.

Another interesting finding is the decrease in the percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, from 45.79% in 2021-2022 to 34.95% in 2022-2023. This shift in the socioeconomic makeup of the student population may have implications for the school's programs and resource allocation. Overall, Founders Classical Academy-Bastrop appears to be a high-performing school that is providing a strong academic foundation for its students, but it may need to consider ways to ensure equitable access to educational opportunities for all students.

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.

Data source: National Center for Education Statistics, U.S. Dept of Education.

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.
