Summary:

East Sandy School is an elementary school located in Sandy, Utah, serving 377 students in grades K-5. It is part of the Canyons District, which is ranked 26 out of 100 districts in Utah and has a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger.

East Sandy School has a higher percentage of White students (74.54%) compared to nearby schools like Copperview School, which has a majority Hispanic student body (56.39%). East Sandy School also generally performs better on RISE assessments, with 54.9% of 5th graders proficient in English Language Arts compared to 49% statewide, and 53.2% proficient in Mathematics compared to 45.3% statewide. Additionally, East Sandy School has a lower percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch (31.3%) than nearby schools like Midvalley School (99.64%) and Copperview School (100%), and has maintained a 3-star rating from SchoolDigger, ranking in the top half of Utah elementary schools.

While East Sandy School's performance is relatively strong, the Canyons District as a whole shows significant disparities in student achievement and socioeconomic factors. For example, Sandy School and Copperview School have consistently ranked in the bottom 20% of Utah elementary schools, with much lower test scores than the district and state averages. This suggests a need for targeted interventions and additional resources to address the achievement gaps within the district.

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.
