Brookwood School

Summary:

Brookwood School is a public elementary school in Sandy, Utah, serving 389 students in grades K-5 and part of the Canyons District, which is ranked 26 out of 100 districts in the state.

Brookwood School consistently outperforms the Canyons District and the state of Utah in standardized test scores, with significantly higher proficiency rates in RISE English Language Arts and Mathematics compared to district and state averages. However, the school has a relatively homogeneous student population, with over 85% of students identifying as White, similar to nearby schools in the Canyons District. Additionally, Brookwood School has a lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, ranging from 4.78% to 7.42% over the past three school years, compared to nearby schools with rates ranging from 9.58% to 23.17%. The school also has a higher student-teacher ratio of 24.8, compared to nearby schools with ratios ranging from 18.4 to 23.8.

Brookwood School's consistently high academic performance suggests the school is effectively supporting student learning and achievement. However, the lack of racial diversity and the potential impact of larger class sizes on student learning and support are areas the Canyons District may want to explore further. The socioeconomic differences between Brookwood School and nearby schools could also have implications for resource allocation and the availability of support services for students from lower-income families.

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.
