Granite School

Summary:

Granite School is an elementary school located in Sandy, Utah, serving 355 students in grades K-5. It is part of the Canyons School District, which is ranked 26 out of 100 districts in Utah and has a 4-star rating.

Granite School consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Utah, receiving a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger and outperforming the district and state averages in RISE assessments across all grade levels. However, the school has a predominantly white student population, with only 85.92% of students identifying as white. Additionally, Granite School serves a more affluent community, with only 9.58% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch, compared to nearby schools like Silver Mesa School and Peruvian Park School, which have higher percentages of students from low-income families.

When compared to nearby schools, Granite School stands out for its academic excellence, consistently outperforming schools like Oakdale School, Peruvian Park School, and Willow Canyon School in RISE assessments. However, the school's lack of racial diversity compared to some of its counterparts, such as Beehive Science & Technology Academy Elementary, is an area that warrants further consideration.

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.
