Lost Pines Elementary

Summary:

Lost Pines Elementary is a public elementary school serving 696 students in grades PK-4 in the Bastrop Independent School District in Bastrop, Texas. The school has a predominantly Hispanic student population (84.05%) and a high percentage of students from low-income families (88.51% qualify for free or reduced-price lunch).

Academically, Lost Pines Elementary has consistently underperformed compared to state and district averages on STAAR tests in reading and math. In the 2022-2023 school year, only 35% of 3rd graders and 44% of 4th graders were proficient or better in reading, compared to state averages of 50% and 47%, respectively. In math, the proficiency rates were 33% for 3rd grade and 37% for 4th grade, compared to state averages of 43% and 47%. The school has a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger and ranks in the bottom half of Texas elementary schools, indicating below-average performance. Interestingly, the nearby Bluebonnet Elementary and Mina Elementary schools generally outperform Lost Pines Elementary on academic measures.

The high percentage of economically disadvantaged students and the large proportion of Hispanic and English Language Learner (ELL) students at Lost Pines Elementary may present unique challenges in terms of providing targeted academic support and addressing potential language and cultural barriers. Despite an increase in per-student spending over the past few years, the school's consistently low performance on state assessments indicates a need for a comprehensive review of its instructional practices, curriculum, and support systems to better serve its student population.

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 attended this school from the beginning. If I had another option besides moving, I would take it. The teachers are attentive and understand, but only if the problem doesn't interfere with their class structure and curriculum. I believe students are asked to know and do a lot more than when I was in school, but my son is ADHD and there isn't much help they are willing to offer. It's been a struggle every year just to make sure he passes. They don't offer any kind of tutorials unless I'm willing to cut my work day to make sure he gets picked up. He does get special help, but I don't believe its enough. I know he can do a lot better. And the teachers and principal only want to help him just so far. He's been tagged as a trouble kid since kindergarten because of all the problems before we were able to put him on some medication. Then I had to go through the steps of finding the right med, which changes every year or so. They believe a lot of his problems are due to my lack of involvement in school, but I just don't have the time. Especially when he is sent with extra homework every night and some times on the weekends. Homework time is usually double that of a normal child. I've recommended a few options to them, but they have never put them into play. 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.
