Santa Fe Elementary

Summary:

Santa Fe Elementary is a public elementary school in Cleburne, Texas, serving grades PK-5 with a student population of 409 and is part of the Cleburne Independent School District.

While Santa Fe Elementary has a predominantly Hispanic student population (63.81%), it faces significant academic challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom half of Texas elementary schools. The school's performance on STAAR tests is generally below the district and state averages across grade levels and subject areas, with proficiency rates ranging from 17% to 42% in reading and 35% to 63% in math, compared to the district's 34-45% and 33-44% and the state's 47-56% and 43-50%, respectively. This is likely due to the school's high percentage (around 90%) of economically disadvantaged students, as indicated by the free/reduced-lunch eligibility rate, which is significantly higher than the nearby schools, such as Plum Creek Elementary and A.G. Elder Elementary, which have lower percentages of economically disadvantaged students and higher academic performance.

While Santa Fe Elementary has shown some improvement in recent years, it still lags behind the nearby schools, which have consistently higher academic performance and rankings, placing them in the top half or top quarter of Texas elementary schools. Addressing the socioeconomic factors and providing targeted interventions and support for the students at Santa Fe Elementary may be crucial in improving the school's academic outcomes and overall 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.
