Victoria West High School

Summary:

Victoria West High School is a public high school serving 1,766 students in grades 9-12 in Victoria, Texas. The school is part of the Victoria Independent School District (ISD), which is ranked 790 out of 968 districts in the state and has a 1-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Victoria West High School faces some challenges compared to state averages. The school has a significantly higher Hispanic student population (62.23%) and lower percentages of White (29.95%) and African American (4.76%) students. Academically, the school consistently ranks in the bottom half of Texas high schools, with a 2-star rating from SchoolDigger. Its performance on STAAR EOC exams is generally below the district and state averages, particularly in Algebra I, English I Reading, and English II Reading. However, the school has shown improvement in its four-year graduation rate, increasing from 92.2% in 2018-2019 to 97.7% in 2021-2022, and its dropout rate has decreased from 1.6% to 0.3% over the same period.

Compared to nearby schools within the Victoria ISD, Victoria West High School generally performs better than the Victoria Regional Juvenile Justice Center and Visd Success Academy, but lags behind Victoria East High School in academic performance and graduation rates. The school's high percentage of Hispanic and low-income students, as well as its below-average performance compared to the state, suggest a need for targeted interventions and support to address these disparities.

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.
