Sanger High School

Summary:

Sanger High School is a public high school serving 827 students in grades 9-12 in Sanger, Texas, which is part of the Sanger Independent School District. The school has maintained high graduation rates, low dropout rates, and strong performance on state assessments, particularly in English and U.S. History, outpacing both the state and district averages. However, the school faces challenges in addressing the needs of its more disadvantaged student populations, and its overall statewide ranking suggests room for improvement to reach the top tier of Texas high schools.

Sanger High School's standout areas include its Gifted and Talented program, which ranks in the top 10% of Texas high schools, and its special education performance, which ranks in the top 30%. The school has also seen a gradual shift in its racial demographics, with a decrease in white students and increases in Hispanic and multi-racial students, reflecting the changing community. Compared to nearby high schools, Sanger High School generally outperforms the lower-ranked schools in the Denton Independent School District, but lags behind the higher-performing Aubrey High School in the Aubrey Independent School District.

While Sanger High School's overall performance is solid, with high graduation rates and strong subject-area proficiency, the school faces challenges in addressing the needs of its more disadvantaged student populations, such as English Language Learners and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds, who perform in the bottom 25-30% of Texas high schools. The school's statewide ranking has fluctuated over the years, ranging from 535 to 886 out of over 1,800 Texas high schools, suggesting its performance is relatively average compared to other high schools in the state.

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.
