Caprock High School

Summary:

Caprock High School is a public high school in Amarillo, Texas, serving 2,090 students in grades 9-12. The school is part of the Amarillo Independent School District, which is ranked 407 out of 968 districts in Texas and has a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Caprock High School faces several challenges, including a significantly higher Hispanic student population (around 70%) compared to nearby schools, lower academic performance on STAAR EOC tests across various subjects, and a lower four-year graduation rate (ranging from 86.7% to 92.2%) than Amarillo High School (93.7%) and Randall High School (98.4%). Additionally, Caprock has a higher percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch (around 76%), indicating a higher proportion of students from low-income families.

While Caprock High School has a relatively lower student-teacher ratio (15.7) compared to nearby schools, the school's performance shows significant disparities among different racial/ethnic groups, with Asian and African American students outperforming Hispanic and White students on STAAR EOC tests. Caprock's rankings for English Language Learners (ELLs) and special education students are also generally lower than the overall school ranking, suggesting these student populations may be facing additional challenges. The school's per-student spending ($9,131 in 2020-2021) is lower than the nearby Amarillo High School ($9,293) and Randall High School ($8,931), which may contribute to the observed academic performance gaps.

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 On 04-28-11, We passed Caprock High School in a funeral procession for my Father. The family of James Chambers would like to send thanks to the ball team for showing their utmost respect when they knelt down and with hats in hand they bowed their heads. These young men should be commended for honoring my father. You should be very proud of these young men. Thanks again

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.
